The Miss Bluffton Scholarship Program has three new ambassadors. Miss Bluffton Britney Wilson, Miss Bluffton Teen Barbara Frederico, and Miss Bluffton Pre-Teen Angelina Facenda were officially crowned at the Miss Bluffton Pageant held Dec. 5 in the auditorium of the Bluffton High School.
The pageant is an official preliminary for the Miss South Carolina Pageant, precursor to the coveted Miss America Pageant held each year in Atlantic City. N.J.
Pageant director Sabra Stutz of Bluffton said she was very pleased with the pageant and the winners.
Wilson is a senior at Hilton Head Island High School. She gave a vocal performance to Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love,” with which she won the talent competition.
Other Miss Bluffton winners include: first runner-up Claudia Swidzinski, who also won the swimsuit competition.
Frederico is a sophomore at Hilton Head Island High School. She gave a vocal performance of “The Climb,” which won for her the talent competition.
Sabrina Powers was Miss Bluffton Teen gown winner.
Facenda is a fifth grader at Red Cedar Elementary. She performed a lyrical dance to “Winter’s Night.” She won both the talent and evening gown competitions.
Jasmyn Schettino was first runner-up for Miss Bluffton Pre-Teen.
The emcee for the event was Poppy Miller, a communications major at USCB who is also a reporter for WHHI-TV on Hilton Head Island.
This year’s event was sponsored by Mike Reichenbach Chevrolet and the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.
The new Miss Bluffton winners will be seen throughout the community as they spread awareness about their platforms, raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network, and prepare for the Miss South Carolina Pageant in June.
