Beth Stomps Feller (born February 20, 1977) is an American sales professional and beauty pageant titleholder from Fairhope, Alabama, who was named Miss Alabama 1997.

Pageant career[edit]

Stomps was chosen as Baldwin County's Junior Miss for 1995 and was a finalist for the state title.[2] After enrolling at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Stomps won the Miss University of Alabama 1996 title and competed in the 1996 Miss Alabama pageant.[3] She placed among the top 11 finalists that year.[4]

In July 1996, Stomps was crowned Miss Alabama Music Hall of Fame 1996-97 which made her eligible to compete at the 1997 Miss Alabama pageant.[4][5] Entering the state pageant in June 1997 as one of 45 finalists, Stomps' preliminary competition talent for Miss Alabama was singing "Love Changes Everything" from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Aspects of Love. Her platform was "Smart Starts in Arts: an AIDS Awareness Program".[4] Stomps won the competition on Saturday, June 14, 1997, when she received her crown from outgoing Miss Alabama titleholder Alison McCreary.[6]

Stomps was Alabama's representative at the Miss America 1998 pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey.[7][8] Her competition talent was vocal performance. Stomps was not one of the finalists for the national title.[1] Her reign as Miss Alabama continued until Ashley Halfman was crowned on June 20, 1998.[9]

As Miss Alabama, her activities included public appearances across the state of Alabama.[5][10] For two months after her reign ended, Stomps was an intern in the offices of Congressman Sonny Callahan.[11]
