USU drops support of Miss Cache Valley

Miss Cache Valley 2012

<strong>LOGAN -</strong> Lindsey Lopez will relinquish her crown and title Saturday as a new crop of hopeful young women compete for her current title–Miss Cache Valley. The annual Miss Cache Valley pageant is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Ellen Eccles Theatre.

Although Lopez received a two-year scholarship to Utah State University, school officials have announced they will not be awarding scholarships this year. Lopez says she is disappointed about that but she realizes USU has had problems with misappropriation of scholarship money this year.

“We’ll look forward with hope and move on in the future,” Lopez says. “Although we don’t have the backing of Utah State University this year, with the $1,000 for Miss Cache Valley, we’ll re-apply next year.

“Hopefully everything will turn out all right because I am so grateful for everything Utah State has done for me. I hope we can offer that to the girls in the future.”

Lopez says the new Miss Cache Valley will receive $1,000 which has been contributed by local businesses. She says it has been a great experience and she has enjoyed doing around 500 hours of volunteer service during the year.
