Dear ,

Ms. Alverno logo

This past April, Alumnae in Training hosted another successful Miss Alverno Pageant. The Miss Alverno Pageant is an event like none other. Participants put their Alverno Abilities into action to compete in five categories: Casual Wear, Interview, Talent, Candidate's Choice, and Formal Wear. Participants gain experience speaking in front of a crowd, get to help out an organization they care about, and show how they are preparing to become an active Alverno Alum.
The Miss Alverno winner, BriAnna Taylor, is an Early Childhood Education and Creative Arts major, working with an Alverno mentor. She is involved in the Alverno community as a member of the cheerleading team and hopes to one day give back to the Alverno community by being a mentor for other Alverno students. BriAnna was poised and had great confidence throughout the entire competition. As Miss Alverno, BriAnna will receive a $250 book scholarship, a variety of Alverno gear, and admission to two Alum Access Events.

We had a great panel of alumnae judges - Alum Board judge Rebecca Rick '04, staff judge Nancy Athanasiou '90, and community member Caitlin Morrall '08 - who all agreed that BriAnna encompassed the qualities of Alverno.
We look forward to watching BriAnna grow into a strong Alverno woman.

Warm regards,
Sarah Ward
Alumnae in Training Coordinator
