Senior Laura Hall Wins Miss Vermont Pageant

Senior Laura Hall was named Miss Vermont in her state pageant in June. Laura will travel to Las Vegas in January, where she will compete in the Miss America Pageant. As Miss Vermont, she has received a $5,000 scholarship and an additional $1,000 for her community service efforts. In addition to representing the Green Mountain State in the Miss America competition, Laura will tour Vermont to promote her platform, Youth Empowerment—Leaders of Today. She plans to speak to audiences of all ages and engage in a variety of community service projects.

Laura, an organizational communication major, has been named to the dean’s list every semester. She received the College’s highest scholarship award when she was named an Augustine Scholar. In addition, Laura has worked in the Admissions Office and performed in Assumption theatre productions. A member of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society, she is senate speaker for SGA.

Laura is the second Assumption student to compete in the Miss America Pageant in recent years. Kristin Gauvin-Neithercut, a 2005 graduate, was Miss Massachusetts that year and went on to compete in the 2006 Miss America pageant. Today, Gauvin-Neithercut, a former New England Patriots and Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader is a dance teacher and the Miss Massachusetts Pageant producer.
