MOUNTAIN VIEW — Clark County native and 2012 Mountain View High School graduate Angela Cruze, 25, received the Denise White Award at the 2019 Global Beauty Awards in Bellevue earlier this year. She also recently led a workshop, “How to Peer Foster Youth and Adopted Youth in a Peer Perspective” at the Wise Symposium in Kennewick. Cruze was kicked out at 17 and went through the foster system, and she has since devoted much time in helping other foster and adopted youth. “My experience competing in the Miss Washington USA Competition has opened my love for helping other system youth get ready for prom. Now I am starting a nonprofit called The Cinderella Story, in which we give a day to remember by helping high school girls get ready for prom,” she said in an email.
