Allen, White capture StCHS High’s pageant crownsTuesday, February 19, 2013
CHRISTOPHER Allen and Shantae White wowed the audience and the judges to emerge victors in the January 26, Mr and Miss St Catherine High School (StCHS) Pageant on the front lawn at the school.
For their success, the two will become a part of the school's celebration of its 65th Anniversary, which will get underway on February 22 at 8:30 am with an official launch on the school grounds.
Exuding intelligence, charisma and confidence, the theme for the pageant, Allen and White distinguished themselves with their modelling and talent pieces, as well as in the interview section of the competition.
Allen won ahead of first runner-up Romaine Wright, who is in fourth form, and Semargh Howell, who is presently in Upper Sixth Form in the male category. White finished ahead of Jordana Tomlin and Aneka Harrison was second runner-up in the female category. Tomlin is in third form and Harrison in lower Sixth Form. Allen is in third form, while White is a Lower Sixth Form student.
While the winners stood out in all departments, there were a bit of nervousness during the proceedings by some contestants, which showed in their delivery, with one even forgetting a part of his talent piece. The audience, however, still cheered him on.
The contestants modelled gowns and suits as well as creative outfits made from recycled materials, while in the talent section Allen's rendition of John Legend's Ordinary People was well received just as White's sand painting demonstration.
Allen also copped the Most Aware and Best Groomed awards, while White also won Best Gown, Most Aware and Best Smile awards. Eight girls and six boys contested the final.
The evening's entertainment was enhanced with a show by now sensation Navino, whose stint included Brave and Chillin' Time that had the audience grooving.
Also, QueCee, a band formed by former students of St Catherine High, had the audience rocking to familiar tunes. Colour Code dance group and B-Kool Dancers also had the audience moving in their seats.
