"The Miss Huntington Beach Scholarship Pageant is more than just a competition. We are extremely fortunate to have an organization that provides a financial opportunity for young women in our community, not only to help advance their educational goals but to pursue their dreams."
"Professionally, educationally, socially, physically, emotionally - pardon the numerous adverbs, but it is incredible in how many ways the Miss HB Scholarship Pageant has changed my life for the better!
Professionally: the experience I have gained in interpersonal and public communications through this program has given me the necessary skills and confidence to pursue my career goals.
Educationally: the generous scholarship I was awarded has helped me to complete my Bachelors Degree at CSULB, and pushed me forward toward my Master's Program.
Socially: the relationships I have gained through this program are immeasurable, with life long friendships developing with both the incredible young women of this year's court and the hardworking staff behind the scenes.
Physically: my platform, "Parks Make Life Better" has brought tremendous awareness to the importance of recreational programs.
Emotionally: overall, the Miss HB Scholarship Pageant has illustrated to me the type of woman I should aspirer to be."
"Not only did I receive a very helpful scholarship for the University of California at Irvine, I was given the opportunity to do more, including the opportunity to sing to 800+ brand new Army recruits, was able to raise over $700 for my "hope for Japan" fundraiser. Carrying this title gave me the extra ability to make that much more of an impact in this beautiful city of Huntington Beach."
"Never before have I received so much support and love from such a diverse group of people in the community. I would not trade anything from this past year for the world!"
"On the night of February 16th, 2002, I found myself standing in the middle of the stage at HBHS being crowned Miss Huntington Beach 2002. Little did I know, at that time, that this event would change my life. In a period of one year, I grew into a stronger, better person. I learned more about myself than I ever have in my life."
"Bring crowned Miss Huntington Beach 2001 was a personal dream come true and a wonderful memory of my last year as a teenager. I have received over $2,000 in scholarships - what a blessing! Thank you to everyone who made my year as Miss HB so memorable and exciting."
"When my name was called to serve as Miss Huntington Beach 1997, I received much more than the title. I came to realize and appreciate the purpose and the program of the Miss HB Scholarship organization. I encountered more positive and inspiring people than I could have hoped for. I never imagined the plentiful opportunities and honors the title of Miss HB had in store for me."
