Jannette Saxton, the 2009 Ms. Wheelchair Washington was named the 1st runner up at the 2010 Ms. Wheelchair America pageant, held August 29th in Rapid City, South Dakota. Jannette, who resides in Lakewood, WA, has had Cerebral Palsy since birth.
She works as a Deployment Specialist at Fort, Lewis, WA and sets up services for the families of soldiers before they deploy far from America’s shores. As Ms. Wheelchair Washington, Jannette has been giving back to veterans and thanking them for their service to our country. She had the honor of attending the National Paralyzed Veterans games, held in Spokane, WA in July. In fact, Jannette’s own call to service has been to share her message of Taking A.C.T.I.O.N!
“Achieving Confidence Through Inspiration, Optimism, and Nurturing”.

Jannette believes that the greatest gift a person can give others is not just their words of encouragement, but the strength and consistency of their example and ultimately “Taking A.C.T.I.O.N”!

Jannette says, “I am so honored and thrilled to become the 1st runner up this year at the 2010 Ms. Wheelchair America pageant, and am so proud to have represent the great state of Washington!.”

Update from Jannette Saxton, Ms. Wheelchair Washington about 2010 Ms. Wheelchair America Competition

I received a call from Jannette to update me and to share with everyone her experience through her first few days at the National Ms. Wheelchair 2010 America competition.
She said that so far it has been amazing, especially to meet such amazing, strong, inspiring women with various disabilities from all over the United States. She feels so bless and honored to be there representing the great state of Washington.
They took all the contestants on an outing to Mt. Rushmore, which was the first time for Jannette and said the view was spectacular!
Each year all the contestants with meet with the judges to do the interview process. Jannette is doing her interviews today (Wednesday and Thursday) both in the afternoon. She is feeling confident and said she feels as though she will go into the interviews with confidence and just be herself.
Jannette, who is a Deployment Specialist for Fort Lewis, WA, sets up services for troops before they have to go far from Americans shores. She said one of the woman volunteering at the pageant, found out what Jannette did for a job, and they made a great connection. The volunteers son is serving abroad.
