Recently, the 2015 Miss Central Massachusetts was crowned and Socially Scene was on site at the historic Masonic Hall in Worcester to see the pageant. Every year, girls of all ages spend count- less hours preparing their talent and style for one night in hopes of taking home the crown. The evening began with celebrity hosts Gustavo Leon, managing editor of the Boston Herald, and Monica Pietrzack, former Miss Con- necticut 2009, introducing the esteemed panel of judges and director of the event, Iva Nicole. From there, the con- testants for Little Miss, Miss Princess and Miss Teen took to the stage and had guests gushing over the adorable future beauty queens. Even though only one was able to walk away Little Miss and Miss Teen, each contestant was given recognition of sorts with awards such as: Miss Photogenic, Miss Congenial- ity, Best Spirit, Best Dress and Best Model. The audience was enter- tained during intermissions with performers such as Scott Isbell, who brought a pop-meets-rock sound to the stage. Wowing the audience was Ava Fratus, a seven- year-old budding musician who writes her own lyrics and exudes a Gwen Stefani attitude. The highlight of the night was the seven hopefuls that competed in the swimsuit, evening gown, and question portion of the event to be- come the next Miss Central Massachusetts. Each contes- tant was given the opportu- nity to show her class and beauty down the Masonic runway and prove to the judges why she was best suited to be the next queen. Just before the winner was crowned, the current Miss Central Massachusetts, Roxanne Ribotgonzalez and Miss Teen Central Massa- chusetts Jessica Reyes gave their heartfelt goodbyes to the rein and wished well to the incoming contenders. After much anticipation and being narrowed down to three, the new queen was announced and Jenna Kelly received the sash and crown to be the 2015 Miss Central Massachusetts. The night was full of glamour and pres- tige as beauty was put on dis- play and given the opportu- nity to show the brains be- hind it all with their accom- plishments along with what they give back to the com- munity. New Queen Jenna Kelly will serve a one-year reign while also winning pro- fessional hair care, photos, and acting classes along with entry into the Miss Massa- chusetts pageant.
