Cleveland High School will host the Miss Cleveland Pageant, sponsored by the sophomore Student Government (Class of 2018), at 7 p.m. on Feb. 27, in the school’s auditorium.
Motivational speaker, educator and entertainer Michael Mozingo will serve as emcee for this year’s pageant. A three-time teacher of the year, he is the current teacher of the year at Warsaw Middle School in Duplin County. He serves as curriculum specialist at Warsaw Middle and the Lead AIG contact for Duplin County Schools. He is a graduate of Hobbton High School, Sampson Community College and holds a B.S. and M.A. in English from Fayetteville State University. He will present the 14th annual Edith Bradshaw Scholarship on Mother’s Day in memory of his late mother. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the door.
Contestants will be judged on casual wear, talent and evening wear. Miss Cleveland will receive a crown, a scholarship and represent Cleveland High School in area parades and events. Awards and scholarships will also be given for runner-up, Miss Congeniality and a Sponsorship Award.
The pageant would not be successful without the financial support of Jordan’s Jewelers and Cleveland Florist II. Don’t miss this opportunity to support young women in our community who strive to be leaders as representatives of Cleveland High School.
