Seniors prep for Jr. Miss

A tradition for Whitehall High School senior girls will continue on Saturday, Oct. 23.

The 48th annual Junior Miss Scholarship program will take place at 7 p.m. in the Whitehall Junior/Senior High School Auditorium, with eight senior girls taking part in the annual event.

“It’s been very good so far,” said Eileen Rozell, who has worked with the Junior Miss Program since it began. “It’s amazing because they all have such long days because they go to school and then they all have soccer or cheerleading and come here after that to prepare for the show.”

Participants go through a six-week program. Each contestant will participate in five categories, including interview, scholarship, fitness, talent and poise. While the first two are done before the show, the fitness, talent and poise portions will be part of the Oct. 23 event.

Winners in each category receive scholarship awards, along with the overall Junior Miss and runners-up.

This year’s participants include seniors students Kelsie Benjamin, Brianna Cook, Kaitlyn Fiorini, Loren Martell, Paige Mason, Katie Paddock, Aerial Ramey and Megan Rozell.

The theme for the 2009 Junior Miss Scholarship Program will be “Across America,” featuring music and routines set to songs that touch on different parts of the United States.

“They are really getting into the program and learning the opening number and fitness routine,” said Rozell. “They also all knew what they were going to be doing for their talents on the first day we met.”

Rozell said she continues to return to the program as an adviser and leader each year to see the girls grow through the program.

“I love doing it,” she said. “You really do see growth in the kids and they get more self confidence and learn so much.”

Many of the traditions that go with the Junior Miss performance night will continue, including the basket party raffle and the refreshment table provided by the National Honor Society.

“Jean Vladyka and Joan LaCroix do an excellent job on the basket party,” said Rozell. “We also have the snacks that are done by the Honor Society as a fundraiser for them.”

Rozell said the students are looking forward to Oct. 23 and they would be ready for the event.

“I hope that a lot of people will come out and cheer the girls on and support them,” said Rozell.

Admission to the 2010 Junior Miss Scholarship Program is $5 per person. For the basket party, sheets of 25 tickets cost $2 each. All proceeds go toward the Junior Miss Scholarship Program.
