At three pageants Abby was crowned the contestant who brought in the most items to benefit Fostering Futures the "Queen of Hope".

 



Abigail "Abby" Busha, of Greer, is the 2016 Miss South Carolina USA Ambassador Preteen and will compete at the national pageant to be held in Palm Harbor, Fla., July 27-31.

Busha’s platform, "Fostering Futures", was created with her brother as inspiration.

Abby’s brother, 11, came to live with the family and they thought by working together, she could bring awareness to the foster care program, and could collect needed items for the children entering foster care.

Stuffed animals could be given to the children in a crisis situation, whether it was entering a home or a facility, where they would face uncertainty and a change in their way of life. She has had more than 1,400 stuffed animals donated to the cause.

Abby partnered with Department of Social Services, S.C. Foster Care Association, Northwood Little League, Four Winds Child Development Center, the Kroc Center, and private donors. She has donated to multiple agencies, which have services for children in crisis.

Abby is also creating Pack a Sacks for foster youth in college throughout the state that include toiletries, school supplies, snacks, and gift cards.

It’s “Cool to be Kind”, is Abby’s motto.

For the past three years Abby has received the Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award and was an Aimin’ High Community Service finalist for her volunteering for several community non-profits.

Abby is the daughter of Brent and Ellen Busha. She has two brothers.

She will be in the 6th grader at Riverside Middle this fall.

At Woodland Elementary, Abby was active in the Honors Chorus, the ARMES Dance program, Junior Beta Club, Beta Buddies Tutoring program, Safety Patrol and was a news anchor for the school morning show.
