COS students wins miss UCF

Jacqueline Boehme, a senior molecular and microbiology major, was awarded the 27th annual Miss UCF crown.

She will receive $1,600 in scholarships and will compete for the title of Miss Florida in July. Should Boehme win the state title she will go on to compete for Miss America.

In August last year, 90 women auditioned for the Miss UCF 2011 pageant. It was then narrowed down to 23 contestants, 18 of whom competed. The show was streamed live on the SGA website for the first time in the pageant’s history.

“It was important to get the show online because of how many family members were out of state and could not attend,” said Chris Pombonyo, director of the CAB Spectacular Knights Committee.

The audience got a chance to vote for their favorite contestant and donate to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a sponsor of the event. Guests raised $2,400 for the cause.
