The Gamma Mu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. held its 2012 Miss Black and Gold scholarship pageant on Wednesday, April 25, on the campus of Livingstone College.
The Miss Black & Gold Scholarship Pageant, affectionately entitled “Dreams Come True: A Prince Finds His Princess,” saw six beautiful and equally talented young women display their intellect, talent, and poise while competing for the title.
Last year’s winner, Annakay Edwards, crowned Sharonda Adams the new Miss Black and Gold while Caprice Wilson was crowned Miss Gamma Mu, Ta’Niqua Newkirk was crowned Miss 1906, and Marie Datcher was crowned Miss Sphinx.
The contestants competed in scholarship, interview, introduction and personality, swimsuit, on-stage knowledge and awareness, talent and evening gown. The winner received a scholarship and the right to represent the Gamma Mu Chapter at the District Miss Black and Gold Pageant in Winston-Salem in November.
