ROYAL CITY, Washington (STPNS) -- It was a wonderful way to “break in” the new WHS auditorium, and the four Mattawa Junior Miss contestants did it in style.
The Mattawa program was delayed this year in order to take advantage of the new venue, and attendees said the comfort and style of the new auditorium was worth the wait.
Brenda Diaz was awarded the new Mattawa Jr. Miss for 2006-2007. With all four girls putting in a lot of effort, each one came away with some sort of award. “It was great to have the first performance in the new auditorium and the girls did a really good job,” said LeAnn Neary, Jr. Miss Director. Brenda Diaz also walked away with Scholastic and Interview, both worth $100 each. Carina Navarette won the talent award with a reading performance from Shakespeare ($100 each). Monica Jimenez, was awarded the self expression and Spirit of Jr. Miss award, worth $100 each. Virginia Gonzalez was given the Chair committee award ($100). Mattawa’s Jr. Miss will be given a $500 scholarship with each alternate receiving $250 to be used toward any college of their choice.
Neary said it was a lot of hard work since most of the committee members were new to the program. “They really need to be given a big thanks for all they’ve done,” she added. Committee members consisted of Katie Hull, Katie Hirai, Cecilia Davis, Amy Marlow, Michelle Bertram and Stacy Ahmann.
