Aceia Spade, a 17-year-old Churchill High School senior was awarded the national title in October during the National Juneteenth Observance Foundation Annual Conference in Tulsa. In a statement about her win, Spade noted that her title came the same year that Juneteenth became a state holiday in Oregon and a federal holiday, too.

Ace, as she likes to be called, is a senior at Churchill High School and upon completion, plans to attend the University of Oregon and major in criminal law. At an early age, Ace wanted to show her passion and the opportunity to help and share a history of her ancestral spirit. In 2021 a piece of her dream has come true, she will shine as National Miss Juneteenth for the next 12 months and showcase to young ladies the power of a dream and hard work.
