EL DORADO HILLS — Oak Ridge boys volleyball coach Melanie DeMure, 42, of El Dorado Hills was crowned Mrs. California Galaxy last month and now sets her sights on the Mrs. Galaxy 2014 pageant later this month in Orlando, Florida.

DeMure is the mother of four children ages 15 years to 15 months. Her oldest, Emily, is a member of the Lady Trojans’ varsity girls volleyball team.

Melanie is spokesperson for Youth Achieving Excellence.com and also Owner/President of Gold Cal Jrs VBC.com. She is also an active volunteer for her children’s schools and PTA. She is a 22-year volunteer and advocate for youth, with her platform “Volunteer … Change a Child’s Life” during her reign as Mrs. California Galaxy.

“What represents me best as Mrs. Galaxy International and as a passionate volunteer for the PTA is a quote from John C. Maxwell’s ‘Success One Day at a Time’ where he states, “Think of the pursuit of your dream as being like a major athletic event. Train for it. As you prepare, exercise you will get stronger mentally, emotionally and physically. To successfully achieve your dream, you need to keep improving … keep your body fit; keep your heart flexible; keep your mind open,” Melanie said.

Galaxy Pageants, Inc. is based in Troy, MI. The Mrs. Galaxy pageant emphasizes beauty, style, cultural appreciation and a personal development opportunity for women of all nations. Mrs. Galaxy International showcases married women for age 21 and older and features four categories of competition; interview, evening gown, swim suit and fashion wear.
