A local attorney has been named “Volunteer of the Year” by Open Doors, Tennessee, and the Miss Shining Star Pageant.

Victoria Bowling has a general law practice in Anderson County, practicing since 1993. Bowling enjoys volunteering in the community and has been an active volunteer for Open Doors, Tennessee, and the Miss Shining Star Pageant for the past five years.

Her daughter, Jordan Bowling, was named an assistant director for Miss Shining Star this past year, serving alongside co-assistant director Leslie Miller (detective sergeant at the ACSD) and director Rhoni Standefer.

Open Doors, Tennessee, is a nonprofit organization. This group provides support and inclusive opportunities for individuals with special needs and their families.

The Miss Shining Star Pageant is just one of the many inclusive activities that Open Doors, Tennessee offers.

Bowling encouraged others to get involved with Open Doors, saying, “If you have never attended the Miss Shining Star Pageant, you are missing out. These are some of the most amazing, talented and beautiful ladies you will ever meet. Open Doors, Tennessee has been instrumental not only in providing events that assist individuals with special needs and their families, but inclusive opportunities for the entire community.

“I am thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of their mission,” she said.
