ALEXANDRA ROSE LONGO CROWNED ‘MISS ADDISON 2010’

Six Women Competed for $2,250 in Scholarships

Six outstanding young women competed Tuesday evening in the Addison Village Hall rotunda for scholarships in the “Miss Addison 2010” pageant. After modeling both casual and formal wear, and completing two question-and-answer rounds with the judges, Alexandra Rose Longo, 2010 graduate of Addison Trail High School, was chosen as the winner.

Ms. Longo achieved the “A” Honor Roll all four years of high school; was a member and officer of National Honor Society; and was recognized as both Illinois State Scholar and Outstanding Senior in English. She will attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the fall, and received a $1,500 scholarship for her studies.

Kali Maginity was chosen as First-Runner Up for the second straight year. She also graduated from Addison Trail this year, and will attend Northwestern University. She received a $500 scholarship.

Monique Barras was chosen as Second-Runner Up. She just completed her junior year at Addison Trail, but plans to use her $250 scholarship in attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011.

The other three contestants were Melissa Adams, ATHS Class of 2011; Jennifer Rowley, 2010 ATHS graduate and former Driscoll Catholic High School student; and Kimberly Schultz, 2010 ATHS graduate.

Miss Addison represents the Village of Addison at the Miss DuPage County pageant, as well as participating in local events such as the Mayor’s Community Charity Ball and the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony.

Four judges ranked the contestants this year: James Narducci of One Salon & Spa of Oak Brook, Panorea Lekkas-Bakutis, former Addison Village Clerk and Trustee; Cheryl Krevitz, manager of Syms of Addison; and Heather Winter of Elmhurst College.
