Stacia Branner, 15, of Marietta, GA, has been signed to a modeling contract with CLICK Model Management of Atlanta following her attendance at the Summer 2016 Discovery Spotlight Model & Talent Expo. She will soon join the ranks of former CLICK models Isabella Rossellini, Uma Thurman, Whitney Houston, Elle MacPherson and Grace Jones.

Branner attended the model and talent showcase at College of Charleston’s Sottile Theatre in July, where she was was scouted by top New York agency reps from Ford Models, Next Model Management, Muse Model Management and Wilhelmina Models, and reviewed by talent agents from Alpha Tyler Casting of Atlanta, GA, Karen Greer Models & Talent of Hollywood, FL, and Directions USA of Greensboro, NC.

While she was not signed by a participating agency, follow-up efforts by the Discovery Spotlight executive team helped to secure a contract for Branner with CLICK Models.

“It was clear from the moment we met Stacia that she had something special,” said Discovery Spotlight Executive Director Cory Dueger. “While she wasn’t immediately signed by one of the agents in attendance at our expo, we knew she had great potential that another agency would choose to develop.”

Branner is currently a freshman at Lassiter High School. She is an avid reader, enjoys language arts, and hopes to pursue a career in fashion merchandising. She will continue to work with the CLICK team to build her portfolio and develop her modeling and acting skills.
