Lorena Sandoval, a junior political science major and member of Alpha Omicron Pi, reigned supreme at Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s first Miss SAE pageant on April 12.

The pageant raised $1440 which was split between the Children’s Miracle Network, SAE’s charity, and the Arthritis Foundation, AOII’s charity.

During the two-day event contestants were judged in four different categories: personal introductions, talent, job interview attire and interview questions.

Pageant participants could also raise points towards their score from audience members buying merchandise or making donations in their name.

“(The pageant) really promotes the modern woman and being able to go out and act professional and graceful,” Kevin Brousard, philanthropy chair for SAE, said.
