Twenty two very qualified young ladies submitted applications to become Miss Pomona 2010. The selection committee had the unenviable position of screening the applicants, evaluating their questionnaire and selecting eight semi-finalists to move forward to the next round. Letters were then mailed to the fourteen applicants who will not continue on, encouraging them to continue their good works in the community and to re-apply next year if they are still eligible.
The selection committee next scheduled interviews with the eight semi-finalists to determine who the three finalists will be. The selections have been made, now the task of choosing Miss Pomona 2010. On Saturday, January 23, 2010 a panel of judges will hear a 5-10 minute speech from each of the finalists and determine which young lady will represent the City as Miss Pomona 2010.
The judges are DPOA president Carolyn Hemming, Western University President Phillip Pumerantz Ph.D, Daily Bulletin Columnist David Allen, Director of Community Outreach College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences Cal Poly Pomona, Jonnie Owens, and former teacher and PUSD Board Member John Avila.
The Miss Pomona Pageant judging and Coronation will take place at 5PM on Saturday, January 23, 2010 at the Masonic Lodge, 330 S. Thomas St., Pomona. The public is welcome, but please RSVP to (909) 469-1121
