MISS UVI A FINALIST IN COLLEGE QUEEN COMPETITION

When Miss UVI 2000, Lindsay Brockington, went to Atlanta, Ga. in September to participate in the 2000 Black College Queens Competition, little did she know she’d be selected one of eight finalists out of 33 colleges that were represented.
The competition, which is in its 15th year, is sponsored by the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation Inc.
Held in the International Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, the competition showcases the talents of young African American women who have already been recognized by their respective colleges and universities with the coveted title of college queen.
Participants were judged in four categories: oratory, talent, poise/projection and presentation/image.
Lindsay, a speech and theatre major at UVI, delivered a speech entitled, "Historically black colleges – the roots of our community." For the talent portion, Lindsay sang "Four Women," a song made popular by Nina Simone.
"I had a great time, I met some wonderful women and everyone was very talented," Brockington said.
