Sara Achorn of Rochester, Miss New Bedford

Rochester native wins Miss New Bedford crown

Oct 02, 2017

Miss New Bedford Sara Achorn alongside several other Miss New Bedford competitors.

NEW BEDFORD — Rochester native Sara Achorn has won the 65th edition of the Miss New Bedford pageant.

Achorn, an 18-year-old freshman at Lesley University, won the crown over eight other contestants. Her win brought her a $6,500 scholarship. In addition, she won two other awards. The first, the Talent Award, was awarded to her as the highest-scoring talent act. Achorn sang “And I am Telling You,” from the musical Dreamgirls.

The new Miss New Bedford also took the Miracle Maker Award, given to the contestant who has raised the most money for the hospitals involved in the Children’s Miracle Network.

All eight contestants competed in several rounds. They answered an “Onstage Question,” performed a talent, and showed off their bathing suits and beautiful dresses in the swimwear and evening wear rounds.

“I instantly felt myself to start to cry,” Achorn said of the final announcement. “Then when they actually called my name I still didn’t believe it. It was crazy! It sounds cliche but I truly believe any one of the women could have walked home with the crown that night.”

Achorn’s will dedicate her year of service to the city of New Bedford as a role model and volunteer. She will also be working on spreading the message of her platform, “Imperfection: Pushing the Importance of Body Positivity in Today’s Youth.”

Achorn also won the Miss Plymouth County pageant in April, and was voted the “Most Talented Non-Finalist” in this year’s Miss Massachusetts pageant.

With her win in the Miss New Bedford pageant, she is eligible to compete in next year’s Miss Massachusetts pageant as well.

The Southcoast area is well represented with Jillian Zucco of Mattapoisett wearing the crown of Miss Massachusetts and local Sara Achorn of Rochester winning the Miss New Bedford title. It’s always exciting to watch one of our own achieving their dreams. Sara is definitely one to keep your eyes on in the coming years.

Back to School in Southeastern Massachusetts!

Back to school, BOLD Moves Real EstateBack to School Time is almost here.  For many parents it’s a time to rejoice, for others it’s a sad time signaling the end of the carefree days of summer.  It’s nice to get back into familiar routines, but school also brings nightly homework and the craziness of sports schedules.

September seems to be the month for Back to School this year.  Labor Day falls a little later this year and most schools in the Southcoast are heading back on the First of September rather than a late August start date.

Here is a schedule of start-up dates for area schools in the Southcoast Massachusetts area:

The Old Rochester Regional District Schools: Tuesday,  September 1st

Old Colony Vocational School:  Tuesday, August 26th

Fairhaven Public Schools:  Tuesday, September 1st,  Freshmen Orientation:  Monday, August 31st.

New Bedford Vocational School:  Tuesday, September 1st, Freshmen Orientation:  Monday, August 31st.

New Bedford Public Schools:  Tuesday, September 1st.

Acushnet Public Schools:  Tuesday, September 1st

Dartmouth Public Schools:  Tuesday, September 1st.

Westport Public Schools:  Tuesday, September 1st.
