r By Hannah Tervort

On April 15, the Santaquin community gathered for the Miss Santaquin Scholarship Pageant. The night featured 11 bright and enthusiastic young women competing for the title of Miss Santaquin 2017. The contestants were Emily Water, Brooklyn Brighton, Tayler Olson, Michelle Zamora, Joshlynn Lerwill, Katrina Judd, Hattie Choules, Malena Larsen, Shaylee Jensen, Staci Snow and Alyssa Behrend.

The production featured a stunning Broadway theme that highlighted the incredible beauty and talent of the contestants. During the night, each contestant participated in competition categories including lifestyle and fitness, talent, an onstage question and evening wear. There was also a 10-minute private interview with the judges done earlier in the day. During the pageant, Miss Santaquin 2016 Shaelyn Waters selected Keela Goudy as the recipient of the pageant-sponsored Outstanding Woman Award for community service.

Each contestant did an absolutely fantastic job throughout all the areas of competition.

The pageant concluded with the announcement of the 2017 Miss Santaquin Royalty: Alyssa Behrend, queen ($2,500 scholarship); Katrina Judd, first attendant ($1,500 scholarship); Staci Snow, second attendant ($1,200 scholarship); and Shaylee Jensen, third attendant ($900 scholarship).

Other awards presented during the evening were: Michelle Zamora, Miss Congeniality; Joshlynn Lerwill, Children’s Miracle Network Fundraising Scholarship; Hattie Choules, Director’s Award; Joshlynn Lerwill, Community Support Award; and Staci Snow, Miss Congeniality.

Behrend’s community platform is “No One Fights Alone” and focuses on support and fundraising for those fighting cancer in the Santaquin community. She will promote that platform throughout her reign. Miss Santaquin is a service organization and works to provide young women with scholarships and service opportunities. Behrend is excited to serve Santaquin and looks forward to promoting her platform throughout the community.
