Miss Volunteer Virginia, Kate Clatterbuck, Inspires Volunteerism and Tourism in Historic Manassas

Kate Clatterbuck was enchanted by the beauty, energy, and hospitality of Manassas. "It has been a wonderful experience," she expressed at the end of her visit.

The current Miss Volunteer Virginia, Kate Clatterbuck, stopped in Historic Manassas on May 28, as part of her tour through Virginia, with a dual purpose of promoting volunteer work and boosting tourism.

During her visit to Manassas, Kate strolled through the streets of Historic Downtown, visiting local shops, and experiencing the unique charm and hospitality of the city.

To savor the local cuisine, Kate had lunch at Katerinas Greek Cuisine, one of the many delicious options in Historic Manassas, and she was joined by Mark Olsen, President of Historic Manassas, Inc., and Patrick Small, the City of Manassas Director of Economic Development.

Kate visited the Manassas Welcome Center and shared her time with our volunteers, some of the visitors, and helped promote ticket sales for the 29th Manassas Railroad Festival.

Miss Volunteer America is a prestigious scholarship pageant that celebrates young women who are actively involved in their communities and dedicated to volunteer work. The organization provides a platform for these women to create a positive impact on society and inspire others to do the same.

Kate Clatterbuck was crowned Miss Virginia Volunteer 2023 and represented Virginia at the Miss Volunteer America pageant in Jackson, Tennessee. Kate was the 4th finalist in the pageant. Since being crowned, Kate has been tirelessly dedicating her time to various volunteer initiatives throughout Virginia.
