I was honored to be on hand for the official coronation of Miss West Seattle Hi Yu at the annaul Hi-Yu Tea and Auction this past weekend. I come from a pageant background having been involved with the Miss USA Pageant system but this one is very different. This particular organization is geared toward education and presents scholarship money to young women in our area.
At the event I was surrounded by young ladies in grade school who were polite, articulate and charming. No doubt their eyes are set on one day becoming Miss Seafair!
Kayli Schulz was officially crowned the 2012 Miss West Seattle Hi-Yu Queen at the annual Spring Tea and Auction held March 18th at the Hall at Fauntleroy. Over 150 guests were on hand to watch as Miss Seafair Veronica Quintero presented her with her tiara, sash and flowers. In addition, the fundraiser will help support the West Seattle community float and the scholarship program for young women.
Kayli Schulz will represent our community this spring and summer at events and parades around the Pacific NW. She will also represent us at Seafair’s 2013 Scholarship for Women Program for the title of Miss Seafair.
