2017 RHS Alum Samantha Schubert

Earlier this year, Rogers High School 2017 Graduate and current Communities in Schools Site Coordinator for Dessie F. Evans Elementary School Samantha Schubert was crowned Miss Washington Volunteer 2023. 

The Miss Washington Volunteer Program serves as an official preliminary competition for Miss Volunteer America, a national, service-oriented scholarship program seeking to empower young women through educational scholarships and extraordinary opportunities.

At the Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center in January, the former Ram went up against other young women around Washington state, where they participated in five stages of competition:

  • Competition
  • Private interview 
  • Lifestyle and fitness
  • Evening gown
  • Onstage question
  • Talent

Along with earning the statewide crown, Schubert won a $10,000 scholarship, planning to use it to pursue a master's in elementary education at Western Governors University. In June 2023, Schubert will travel to Jackson, TN and compete for a chance to win Miss Volunteer America and a $50,000 scholarship.

In 2015, Schubert founded Miss Exceptional, a local pageant system focusing on personality and inclusivity, where she also still serves as co-director. The pageant is part of the Lakewood-based non-profit for families with children with special needs, the Exceptional Families Network.
