Four lovely candidates did a spectacular job at putting on a great show this past Saturday, March 31, 2012, at this year's Miss Isla Bonita Elementary Pageant. At the end of the fundraiser show that took place at the R. Angel Nuñez Auditorium, Alejandra Hackston, won the title of the new Miss Isla Bonita Elementary.
The pageant was a popularity fundraising competition and each candidate has been working hard, together with their classes, to raise money for improvements to the Isla Bonita playground and lunch area. The girl with the most funds at the end of the evening was crowned the new queen of the school.
The four contestants were Caroline Sersland, Joyce Martinez, Martha Alica Vasquez, Alejandra Hackston. Outgoing Queen Grace Brown was on hand to crown the new Miss Isla Bonita Elementary, Alejandra Hackson who raised over $7,000 for the school. Each contestant won great prizes donated by the business community including some pampering by Kristi Gonzalez of Escape Spa just before pageant night.
