2023 Fall Festival of Leaves Queens Pageant

2023 Applications are Closed.

On May 30, 2003 the Bainbridge community lost a very special friend. Mrs. Loraine Campbell Granger was a committee member of the Fall Festival of Leaves committee and a devoted teacher to her many Paint Valley students, even after her retirement. As she is missed by many, it is with great pride that the annual Fall Festival of Leaves Scholarship Queen Pageant be dedicated to her.
