UNION — On Saturday, March 8, 2014, the University 101 Class under the instruction of Bobby Holcombe will produce the third Miss USC Union Pageant since 1978. The pageant was reincarnated as a community service project but also provides scholarships for the queen, as well as first and second runners-up. Proceeds from this pageant will benefit the local Alzheimer’s Association. Since fall 2011 the University 101 classes have raised more than $10,000 towards finding a cure for Alzheimer’s.
This year’s theme, “Celebrating the 1990’s” will showcase nine young women throughout the evening in casual wear, on-stage questions, talent and evening gown competition. The pageant will be held in the USCU Main Building Auditorium on March 8 at 7 p.m.
Last year’s Miss USC Union, Cristen Wheatley will entertain the audience with her talent and crown the 2014 Miss USC Union. This year’s contestants are: Jasmine Craig (Union), Kami Edwards (Pauline), Kayce Edwards (Union), Shyanne Haney (Roebuck), Jasmine Navarro (Whitmire), Cassie Sinclair (Union), Alexis Taylor (Union), Makayla Thompson (Union) and Colie Touzel (Santuc).
Admission to the pageant is by ticket only. The tickets are $5 each and can be purchased prior to the pageant from: University 101 students, contestants, the USCU Financial Aid Office (864-429-8728 or 1-800-768-5566, ext. 7724) or USC Union in Laurens. Tickets will be sold the night of the pageant at the door.
