Claudia Scott, a native of Trinidad & Tobago, immigrated to the USA at the age of eight and resided in Elizabeth, NJ. After graduating high school, she attended Ladycliff College in Highland Falls, New York where she earned a BS degree in American History and Early Childhood Education. She then married her college sweetheart, Clarence Scott, (U.S. Army Retired) a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. This started her travels to many military bases in the USA and around the world. For many years Claudia taught school on Military bases in the USA and Germany until she fulfilled her dream of owning and operating her own preschool and daycare.

While living on the military bases she worked with the Army Community Services organization where she started a preschool for the junior enlisted soldiers and their families. Here, these families had a place to take their children while they shopped or even just wanted a break. The cost was on a sliding scale which greatly benefited the families. She also volunteered with the Ft. Campbell Rape Crisis Team and as a team member was the first person a rape victim saw after entering the emergency room.

After moving to Indiana, Mrs. Scott worked for 18 years as an Operations Manager at FedEx Express, during which time she earned an Executive MBA in Business Management from Colorado Technical University. During that time, she continued her volunteer work with the March of Dimes and Toys for Tots. As a Battalion and Brigade Commander’s wife her Army family was also her responsibility. She served the soldiers and their families by holding coffee times, parties, formal events, and as the Family Support Leader for the families while the soldiers were deployed.

Claudia lived in Washington D C for three years. While there she was involved with the Honor Flights that visited DC from all over the country. She continued to be a part of that organization when she moved back to Indiana. She became and is a member of the ground crew for the Indy Honor Flight. Claudia also became a Road to Recovery Driver for the American Cancer Society, giving rides to cancer patients so they could make it to their appointments. She is also a member of the Bloomington Kiwanis Club, an organization that advocates for children all over the world.

Mrs. Scott has judged many pageants and has been a part of pageantry since her daughter, Jennifer, was three years old. She owns Designing Divas Studio where she coaches girls and women of all ages in all aspects needed for pageant competition as well as life skills. She also owns Crown Pointe Dance Studio in Rockport, IN where kids can develop their talents in dance, tumbling, and cheer.

Claudia competed in her first Pure International Pageant as the 2016 Pure International Classy Ms. Trinidad and Tobago. After a rigorous time of competition, she was crowned the 2017 Inaugural Pure International Classy Ms. Queen for Pure International Pageants. It was an honor that thoroughly overwhelmed her but led her to truly feel and live her mantra- I am Strong, I am Beautiful, I am Blessed! With help and support from her family, the Pure family, and living her mantra, she fought and beat breast cancer. She has now been cancer free for two years and 6 months. Claudia is looking forward to a strong healthy life because she believes that she can do all things through Christ who strengthens her!

She loves fishing, singing and scrapbooking. Thirty-nine years later Claudia is still married and in love with her college Sweetheart. They have three successful children, James III, Jennifer Marie, and David Michael.
