Miss Santee & Miss Santee Teen 2009

Earlier this month the Miss Santee/Miss Santee Teen Pageant was held at Sonrise Community Church.  I was not able to attend, but I did get to meet the young ladies who won at the SanTree Fest the following week.  I would like to introduce them to you (wiht thanks to the Santee Chamber of Commerce for the bio information).

Miss Santee, Sierra Billock, and Miss Santee Teen, Nicole Elhke

Miss Santee & Miss Santee Teen

Sierra Billock is 21 and a marketing major at San Marcos State University.  She also works as a Brand Manager for Bath and Body Works, and enjoys golf when she has time.  Last year Sierra was named Miss Congeniality.  This was her fourth time competing in the Miss Santee Pageant.  She receives a $300 college scholarship donated by Santee businesses.

Nicole Elhke is 16 and a junior at West Hills High School.  This was her second try for Miss Santee Teen, and she credits last year’s winner, Lizzie Lingasin, for helping her prepare for this year’s pageant.  Nicole works as a tutor at her school and is on the Principal’s Honor Roll.  She also volunteers at Alvarado Hospital and plans to become a pediatric emergency room doctor.  She receives a $125 scholarship sponsored by Viejas.

Santee Chamber Ambassadors

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the Santee Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors.  This is a group of local Santee business men and women who go a few steps beyond the normal Chamber member role.  They reach out to other businesses, attend business grand openings, and help promote the city as a business destination.  Currently the main project on the Chamber’s and Ambassadors’ list is the upcoming Santee Street Fair, which will be on May 30 at Riverview Parkway and Mission Gorge Rd. (more on this soon).  If you own or work at a business in Santee, and you would like to become involved in the Chamber or see how the Chamber can help you, follow the link below to their website.
