Nadia Moffett — Miss NC USA

That’s right, we’ve got the reigning Miss North Carolina right here on Page Three this week. However Nadia Moffett, a resident of High Point and 2007 graduate of UNCG, has more to plug than her turn at the Miss USA Pageant to be held in Las Vegas in about four weeks. She’s also put together a team for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure that has thus far raised more than $1,500 for breast cancer research. “I am really passionate about women’s empowerment,” she says. “Breast cancer is an epidemic, and African-American women have a higher fatality rate.” Send her off Sunday evening with a dinner at Greensboro’s Undercurrent restaurant with live jazz and a silent auction. Or donate directly to her cause at or And make sure to pull for her in Las Vegas.
