Directors: Marcie, Joe & Julie Aceto
We Are Family
This motto for the Mrs. America pageants runs so true for the directors of the Illinois America pageants: Marcie & Joe Aceto and their daughter Julie, who have been directors Mrs. Illinois-America for almost 40 years!
Voted “Directors of the Decades” in 2019 and capturing their first Mrs. America title in the same year, they are just as committed as ever to supporting their winners during their reign and beyond.
