THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

(

Kim Jarson, left, and Scott Stefanko are proud of Stacey's
achievements.

cially for Stacey, who has
never been involved in sports.
It was a required jazz aerobic
dance designed to test agility,
coordination, and stamina.
Fortunately, Stacey keeps fit
by doing aerobic exercises to
the radio in her home.
As the program date ap-
proached, the three-hour re-
hearsals became demanding
five-hour dress rehearsals.
The program was held at the
Livonia high school at the
end of November. It became a
magical place for the 13 com-
petitors, with magic as the
theme. Gracefully moving
about the stage in a beautiful
gown, Stacey was cheered by
friends and strangers while
judges watched her every
move. For Stacey, the magic
lingered. She took first place
in poise and appearance, ta-
lent, and physical fitness. A
pleasant reality was a $100
scholarship accompanying
each of the first place
standings and an additional
$500 scholarship for becom-
ing Livonia's 1987 Junior
Miss.

In February, Stacey com-
peted in the state program in
Marshall, which has hosted
the Junior Miss state compe-
tition for the past 29 years.
The city is used to hosting
the contestants and par-
ticipating in the festivities.
For Stacey, however, it was a
new experience. there were
24 girls from Alpena to Zee-
land, winners just like Stacey
who came from across the
state for the week-long event.
The routines that Stacey had
spent two months learning
were changed and the girls
had one week to master the
new and more demanding
exercises.
Meanwhile, the competitors
got to know their host
families and each other. They
even ate a few meals with
the judges. They were nice,
but Stacey was well aware

that her interview with them
would be 35 percent of her
final score.
There were parties and so-
cial events to thank the cor-
porations that sponsor Junior
Miss nationally. The majority
of Stacey's time, however,
was spent at Marshall
Middle School preparing.
It was a wonderful ex-
perience for Stacey, who was
the only Jew in the competi-
tion. She made friends she
will "keep in touch with for a
long time." Many of her local
friends drove the two hours
to Marshall to cheer her as
she earned a $300 schol-
arship for winning the poise
and appearance category and
a $500 scholarship for being
a finalist in the overall
competition.
The glamorous, magical
events may now be over, but
for Stacey Heisler, Junior
Miss continues. As Livonia's
reigning Junior Miss, she vis-
its Rotary Club and Jaycees
meetings to raise scholarship
funds for next year's pro-
gram. ❑

New Spiritual
Identity Urged

Washington (JTA) —
American Jews must find
their religious identity in the
United States instead of vic-
ariously through Israel, said
Rabbi Joshua Haberman,
president of the Foundation
for Jewish Studies. "We can't
live as Jews through Israel as
our proxy."
"We must never cease in
our support and identification
with Israel, but we must live
as Jews here even as they
must live as Israelis and
Jews there," he said. -

Haberman said he believes
there is a renewed "quest for -
Jewish knowledge."
