Fanchon Page, CEO/President

Fanchon Kent has over 10 years experience in various operational and HR roles, primarily in non-profit, banking and private sectors. Entrepreneurial executive and relationship builder with strong communication, presentation, and management skills. She joined Miss Black Ohio in 1997 and is responsible for the People function, providing HR leadership, as well as training and development. Her overall responsibility is to oversee the logistics of the organization and to build a rapport with local community related organizations. In 2009, the organization merged with a national pageant; Miss Black America. 

Our program helps build confidence and self-esteem in pageant participants, and offers social and business etiquette training to prepare them on how to behave in a multitude of settings. Students also conduct volunteer activities at local charities during their training. “Our work culminates at the pageant as a way for these young ladies to showcase their hard work and dedication.”
