San Pedro High School announces candidates for their Miss SPHS Pageant
Friday, April 8th, 2016
San Pedro High School (SPHS) is hosting its annual Miss SPHS Pageant on Saturday, April 30th at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium. The four contestants up for the title are Norma Lopez, Lisandra Novelo, Faith Edgar, and Janelly Aban. For the last two years Sheila Chi has been holding the title, and is ready to pass the title of Miss SPHS 2016-2017 to the winner of this year’s pageant.
According to event organizer Philip Ramsey, the pageant promises to be a night of fun-filled presentations and entertainment. The show will comprise of six segments, with one featuring one of Belize’s ethnic group; the East Indians. The four girls are currently being coached in the art of pageantry and dance by former Miss San Pedro, Yakarelis Hernandez.
The pageant will start with an introduction of the contestants, after which the young ladies will showcase a presentation portraying Indian gods. They will then model professional/business attire, sportswear, casual wear, evening wear and then face the tough, question and answer session.
According to Ramsey, the four contestants are not typical pageant girls. They are into sports and other activities that require endurance and hard physical work. The sports-wear segment was introduced to the pageant due to the participants’ sporting background.
Prior to the pageant, the contestants will be presented to the community when the candidates are officially sashed on Thursday, April 14th at Hidden Treasure Restaurant at 6PM. During the official presentation sponsors will be recognized, and according to Ramsey one more sponsor is needed. “SPHS is humbly asking for a business to step up to the plate,” he commented.
The high school is also asking local businesses for donations towards this event. They can be in the form of a gift to give to their participants. Anyone who is interested in donating a prize or becoming a sponsor, can call 226-2045.
