HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Three Miss Hawaii's are joining forces to revive the Miss Hawaii Princess Program. Candes Meijide Gentry (Miss Hawaii '99), Jennifer Hera Pimentel (Miss Hawaii '98) and Billie Takaki Lueder (Miss Hawaii '00) are teaming up to blend their Miss Hawaii platforms: Promoting Character Development, Adversity Builds Character and Peer Mentoring.
Princesses will participate in a Charm School on Sunday, May 17 where they will be teamed up with a Miss Hawaii contestant title holder as their mentor to learn the secrets of her success and be pampered with a hair and nail session. They will learn about the four points of the crown and how to incorporate style, scholarship, service, and success into their lives.
On Saturday, May 23 at Honolulu Community College, the program will hold a special crowning ceremony at 4pm. Each princess will receive their own mini version of the Miss America crown, a certificate, and memories that will last a lifetime.
With the values promoted by the Miss America and Miss Hawaii Organizations, the Princess Program specializes in teaching these and many more important aspects of life that helps to contribute in the development of a well-rounded individual. With the help of our Miss Hawaii state finalists, our current Miss Hawaii Outstanding Teen and Miss Hawaii, the young ladies have the opportunity to share in this unique enrichment program.
