Delegates vying for the title of Miss Region Three Culture 2017 are undergoing rigorous training that will see the pageant being promoted and executed with high standards. The pageant is still open to persons who might be interested in pageantry and to date, at least nine talented young women are in the race. They are Tonia Harris, Anicia Williams, Marcia Clarke, Sonia Cummings, Tanya Delseon, Kasherell Tiffany Payne, Withney Loshanna Robertson, Latanya Pearce and Odella Fowler.The pageant is held with the aim of empowering young women to realise their potential through a competitive, yet collaborative effort, but more importantly, to become goodwill ambassadors and be role models in society.In addition, the pageant is expected to encourage individual growth, personal platforms and community involvement. The show is billed for April 1, in the parking lot of the Leonora Synthetic Track, and is being directed by founder of the new committee, Troylyn Aaron-Wallace and Damon Wallace, with assistance by Colvin Andrews who is also a trainer.The girls are undoubtedly in good hands as former beauty queen Melessya Payne, who has a wealth of knowledge from pageantry, is the make-up artiste. There is no doubt as well that Payne will motivate the delegates as they get ready for competition mode.The delegates will be participating in several activities leading up to the pageant. As a matter of fact, the delegates were already on a Miss Photogenic Competition on NBTV. Thus far, several businesses have indicated their interest in being a part of the event. These include Obrey James Photo Studio, Limitless Kreations, Big Yard Auto Sales, Pieces and Things and Expression Designs.
