Kendyl Jones Named Miss SU

Kendyl Jones of Oak Grove was crowned Miss Southern Union during the college’s annual pageant held February 4.  Jones will now go on to compete in the Miss Alabama Pageant which will be held in Birmingham in June.

This year, six young women competed for the title of Miss Southern Union.  Contestants were judged in private interview, talent, swimsuit, eveningwear, as well as an on-stage question. In addition to each of the judged categories, contestants are required to select a platform, choosing a topic in which they are currently involved or about which they feel strongly, such as a form of community service. Jones chose Ovarian Cancer Awareness as her platform.

Sara Kathryn Espy of Eufaula was named first runner up to Miss Southern Union, and Courtney Finley of Andalusia was named second runner-up.  The winner of the swimsuit competition was Angel McCaig of Lincoln and Haley Hamer of Lanett won the talent competition.

The Miss Southern Union Pageant is an official preliminary of the Miss Alabama/Miss America Pageant. For more information, or to schedule an appearance by Miss Southern Union, contact Shondae Brown, director of the Miss Southern Union pageant, at 256-395-2211.
