Highland Middle School student Selina Marie Cruz, Marengo, has been chosen as a State Finalist in the National American Miss Ohio Pageant to be held July 19 and 21, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Columbus, Ohio.
She was selected as a finalist after her interview with NAM on April 13, 2014. She also participated in the April 12th pre-teen Columbus pageant in Newark. The pageant is open to girls 10 - 12 years old.
Selina will be competing in the Miss Pre-Teen division for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. She will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s Columbus judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition. Miss Pre-Teen Ohio will receive a $1,000 cash award, the official crown and banner, a bouquet of roses, and air transportation to the national pageant at Disneyland in California. Miss Pre-Teen Ohio will represent her state all year, tour Hollywood and receive a modeling scholarship.
Selina is the daughter of Hector Cruz-Martinez and Cynthia D. Daniel Cruz. She hopes to attend Gilead Christian School, learn to speak fluent Spanish, enjoys math, plays flute, is learning piano and plan to join track next year. She likes horseback riding, loves to travel, enjoys ministering and serving others with her family and likes to spend quiet time reading scripture and listening to praise worship music.
