Mrs. New Jersey Competes In Honor Of Late Father

Posted: Updated:
Mahwah, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Up and coming Mrs. New Jersey pageant contestant, Paige Lippe, always loved her father and was extremely proud of his work as an emergency room doctor. Although he was an experienced flyer he was sadly involved in a crash while on a flight from Essex County to a hospital in the Finger Lakes area and passed away in 2010.

Lippe’s mother decided to honor her father’s memory by starting the Dr. Michael S. Lippe Memorial Project. Through Dr. Lippe’s work in the ER he had always said he was so appreciative and proud of those involved in EMS and pre-hospital services. The fund provides scholarships for those who want to become EMTs and paramedics. It also offers scholarships for those in Mahwah High School who want to go into that field.

Now, Paige plans on taking the Dr. Michael S. Lippe Memorial Project to a whole new level. She is competing in the Mrs. New Jersey United States pageant where she will be representing Mahwah Township. The pageant has three phases and it is only for married women. They have evening gown, swim suit, and an interview phase. During the interview phase, contestants are asked to speak about a platform and Paige found this to be a great opportunity to promote the important charity that honors her father’s memory.

“I think he would say ‘you are doing really great’ and I think he would be very proud of me and my mom,” Paige said.

This is going to be Paige’s first pageant to ever compete in. She already has her Mrs. Mahwah crown and banner and the evening gown she’ll be competing in, set and ready to go for when pageant day comes. While ‘Miss Pageants’ are often used by younger women who are looking to launch a career, the ‘Mrs. Pageant’ gives more than just bragging rights. Paige is taking this competition opportunity to help promote her father’s charity and take it to a whole new level in order to raise even more money for scholarships for those who want to work in the field that was once so important to her father.
