Miss San Pedro 2004-2005 Roxanna Bradley

An ecstatic crowd cheered with delight last Friday evening when contestant Roxanna Bradley was announced as Miss San Pedro 2004-2005. Well-organized, this year's Miss San Pedro Pageant drew a large crowd to the Old Football Field where five lovely young ladies vied for the prestigious title.

    Setting the pace for an evening of entertainment, were the members of the San Pedro Dance Company with a presentation appropriately entitled "La Isla Bonita." Adding zing and zest to the evening were San Pedro's host and hostess extraordinaire – Eiden Salazar Jr. and Wilema Alamilla Gonzalez.

    The contestants made their first appearance in casual wear as they introduced themselves to the audience. Following this stage of the competition, it was the "Mini Barbies" of Barbara's Dance Group who took center stage generating applause and laughter from the audience. The Temptation Girls, another local dance group, also performed for the pleasure of those attending. Miss San Pedro 2003-2004 Tatiana Rivero then joined the delegates on stage in a special dance presentation entitled "Hot, Hot, Hot." Following the swimsuit competition, glamour and glitter filled the stage as the contestants paraded in their evening wear and chit-chatted with the emcees prior to the question and answer session. The contestants were then serenaded by two talented young men from San Pedro High School, Jamir Gillett and Javier Romero. 

    The competition was indeed a very tough one as all of the contestants proved to have "what it takes" to be the new Miss San Pedro. At the end of the evening though, it was Roxanna Bradley, sponsored by the Belize Bank, who stole the hearts of the audience and the judges. Besides winning the title of Miss San Pedro, she was also named Miss Photogenic. Sheena Paz was named first runner-up, while Eden Velasquez was voted Miss Amity. The difficult task of selecting this year's Miss San Pedro was in the capable hands of a distinguished panel of judges consisting of Jenny Woods, Jan Brown, Melinda Escalante, Alberto Villanueva Jr., and Jim Mathewson. Tabulating the judges scores were Melanie Halliday, Ruben Gonzalez, and Darwin Williams.

    Miss Roxanna Bradley will be officially crowned at a special coronation ceremony to be held at Central Park on Friday, September 10th during the Battle of St. George's Caye Day celebrations. As the new Miss San Pedro, Miss Bradley received a one-year scholarship for sixth form (tuition only), courtesy of the San Pedro Town Council. She also received a gold bracelet, a bicycle, a $100 savings account at St. Francis Xavier Credit Union, a $100 savings account at Atlantic Bank Ltd., a $200 savings account at the Alliance Bank of Belize Ltd., $500 cash from Atlantic International Bank, $150 cash from Southwind Properties, $100 cash from Belize Real Estate Ltd., a one-month membership at the San Pedro Family Fitness Club, one CD player from Harmouch's Center, a gift basket from Wine de Vine, a silver necklace from the Cottage Gift Shop, a ziricote figurine from Graniel's Cabinet Shop, a pair of earrings from Mel Spain, a 20-minute phone call to the US from Caribbean Connection Internet Café, and free unlimited Internet access for two months at Island Internet.

    Through this medium, the organizers of the pageant would like to thank all of the sponsors, businesses and everyone who helped make this event possible, especially the invaluable help received from Mr. Manuel Ancona Jr.

    The San Pedro Sun congratulates Roxanna Bradley on her win and wishes her the best during her reign as Miss San Pedro 2004-2005.
