Miss Senior High 2020 reschedules the pageant on March 6 and will be held at the Luce Auditorium.
The date was officially announced on the Facebook page of Miss Senior High last Feb. 10.
The pageant was supposed to happen on Feb. 22, but the SHS council decided to reschedule it for a later date due to the threat of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
The pageant is themed, “Woman of the New Millenium” to embody the progress of individuals who are defined as “thinkers and doers of society.”
The message is that the Miss Senior High is driven with action towards current problems and does what she can do to adapt to the changing times.
Pageant Chairperson Caroline Tam said, “one of the council’s main goal is student involvement and this is a way to let the student body to be aware of the candidates that are competing in the pageant.”
She added that the pageant will offer opportunities and will enhance the skills of SHS students since the entire student population of the department is working on it.
This year’s candidates are: Gerarica Villaflores and Leira Camille Ronato, Grade 11 ABM students; Debie Miranda and Cassiopeia Alesna, Grade 11 HUMSS students; Alyssa Drew Nasiad, Danielle Elysha Pinili and Lady Angela Bureros, Grade 11 STEAM students; will vie for the title of “Woman of the New Millenium.”
The planning of the event began after Alexandra Tuale was crowned as Miss Silliman 2019. Tam, together with her Co-Chairperson Lara Labitad and the SHS Student Council took the chance to organize it at the time of their planned Senior High Week celebration.
For Tam, being a graduating student and organizing a big event together with Labitad is a challenge for them. According to her, the support of the Student Council is still with them
“In God’s grace, we have managed to balance our academics and organizing the event,” they said.
“There are a lot of students who have what it takes to be a candidate. Secondly, you can see that the committee behind the pageant is very hands-on with everything and passionate about what they are doing,” Tam said.
Tickets are still available and can be purchased from committee members, any Miss Senior High candidate or from the SUSHS Student Council Office located at the Roble Hall.
