by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow â€” Â The Miss Wheat Capitol Pageant may return to Wellington, if the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce has anything to do with it.“We are trying to revive the Miss Wheat Capitol Pageant,” said Annarose White, WACC Executive Director “We are considering making it a dual crowned event by adding Miss Sumner County.”The first pageant took place in 1993 with a theme of “Love Is A Wonderful Thing.” It is a qualifying pageant for Miss Kansas.White said if the community is interested in hosting a pageant, it would need to be between the months of September and February. The Miss Kansas Pageant is in June.In order to host a pageant, a board of directors would have to be established before scholarships could even be collected. Originally, there were 10 people on the board and a panel of five judges. A financial advisor and legal counsel would also be needed.“Our goal is to get people to serve on the board,” said White. “We need a board of directors before we can do anything. It is really crucial that we develop a board. There are a few people in Caldwell interested, and Julia Strnad has been working with us.”Positions available on the board include executive director, production, entries, hostess, hospitality, scholarship and awards, judges, tickets, publicity and programs. Some of the original people involved in the pageant were Hankie Holefelder and Lisa Alton, who currently help with the Miss Kansas pageant.There are four points of the Miss Kansas organization: scholarship, service, style and success. Competitions will include swim suit, talent and evening gown.Girls ages 17-24 are eligible to compete for the title. The winner will earn a college scholarship. Each contestant must raise at least $100 in order to compete at the local level. If they win the local level, they must raise $250 in order to compete for the Miss Kansas title. All funds are donated to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.White said that universities put up in kind scholarships, which means the winner would receive a full ride college scholarship. Currently, there are 10 franchises participating in the pageant, with the closest being Miss Walnut Valley and Miss Cowley County.“In Wellington, we have Miss Sunflower, who is Sabrina Nelson this year,” White said.Nelson was Miss Kansas Hannah Wagner’s support staff while she was going through the process of becoming Miss Kansas.“I think it would be pretty neat to have a winter themed pageant, maybe during the holidays or the first part of January,” White said.People who are interested in serving on the Miss Wheat Capitol board of directors can contact the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce. An interest meeting is being planned for Tuesday, Sept. 29th at 5:30 p.m. at the Chamber office. If requested, an additional earlier meeting may be held that day.Follow us on Twitter.

The leadership of the University of Liberia (UL) graduate school comprising, the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) and those from the Masters of Public Administration (MPA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, over the weekend led a team of ‘fighters’ whose concerted efforts are aimed at kicking the Ebola virus disease (EVD) completely out of Grand Cape Mount County (GCMC) and the rest of Liberia.Communities the UL graduate school leadership toured are in Kenema, Tewor District in Grand Cape Mount County, Western Liberia where they also distributed anti-Ebola materials, such as hand-sensitizers, buckets for regular hand washing and nutritional food for those previously afflicted by the disease and other members of the district.The leadership, which was headed by its president Varney Fahnbulleh, and assisted by the vice president, Alomeza Ennos, and the secretary-general, G. Sylvester Nunner, also created awareness in those communities aimed at avoiding the further spread of the deadly virus.Items distributed worth over US$5000, the president confirmed when he spoke exclusively to the Daily Observer shortly after they returned from the Cape Mount tour.Apart from materials distributed and awareness, the UL graduate leadership also educated the inhabitants about safe-burial methods in the wake of the outbreak and informed the communities of how to do proper contact tracing of suspected persons carrying the Ebola virus.According to Mr. Fahnbulleh, the exercise is aimed at putting an end to any new outbreak in any part of the country, “because, we intend to carry out similar awareness and distribution in Buchanan, Grand Bassa and River Cess Counties in the coming weeks.”Meanwhile, the Kennema Town Chief, Sensee Freeman, alolng with a team of elders, commended the UL graduate school leadership for the thinking about their district in this critical time of country’s health situation.He then promised to take advantage of the awareness messages and as well distribute items they received to the most ‘vulnerable’ family members in the district.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
