Macy Scharmer

Scharmer 2024

Hi everyone! Macy Scharmer here! I am so endlessly grateful to be a Miss PMA nominee for the best weekend of the year, also known as “Seminar”! :))) I originally came in my blue shirt in 2018 as a T-Rex (clap clap ROAR), and coming to Seminar was never a question in my mind as I’m the 4th of 4 kids in my family to attend. Currently, I’m finishing up my fourth and final year at NDSU studying Science Education and Theatre Arts, and will be student teaching abroad this spring in New Zealand! Thankfully, I’ll be back in ND with plenty of time to spare for the first weekend of June! Being Miss PMA would truly mean the world as this organization has been near and dear to my heart since I saw what it meant to my siblings over the years and I finally got the chance to experience it myself. As a token theatre kid and a future teacher, I have no doubt about my capability of sharing the greatest love of all with our sophomores! I plan to bring my full enthusiasm, postivity, and love of cheers to the weekend! If I don’t lose my voice by Sunday, I’m not cheering loud enough;) In all realness, this would be an unforgettable opportunity to serve not only future blue shirts but alumni as a whole. It would be an honor to represent this organization’s overall PMA and definitely would not take the job lightly. This truly is an opportunity of a lifetime where I would not only bring the energy, but also the passion for NDLS that comes with years of being involved with the organization. Thank you for considering me as your Miss PMA and, as always, eNDLeSs hugs!!!

Hello, my name is Rieley Staggs. I am so excited and grateful to have been nominated! NDLS has been such a big part of my life since I came in 2018.
