Miss Iriga is Katrina Euda Sumayao

A seventeen year old unassuming college lass won the title of Miss Iriga 2007 and the top prize of Php 50,000.00 plus three other minor awards in this year`s edition of the Iriga City Beauty Pageant held in connection with the city`s celebration of its pintakasi each year on June 13.

Katrina Euda R. Sumayao bested a field of 20 young, beautiful and talented ladies in an elegant and spectacular coronation night held at the newly repaired (damaged by Typhoon Reming) City Colosseum on June 11, 2007.

Her royal court includes Ms. Rinconada Jennifer S. Arguelles of Bato, Cam. Sur; Ms. Tourism Shecill Bhertie Bagaporo of Iriga City; 1st runner-up Dona Ann R. Oñate of Nabua; and 2nd runner-up Sweinah V. Romaraog of Bato.

The bevy of beauties dazzled the crowd with their breath-taking opening number and their inspiring production number in their enchanting evening gowns. The show, whose theme is "Healing the World" brought into focus, yet again, one of Iriga City Mayor Madel Alfelor-Gazmen`s passionate advocacy of conserving nature and saving it for future generations.

The evening gown competition strayed away from the usual fashion norm by featuring the students of the only Special Education School (SPED) catering to differently-abled children in Rinconada, translating in sign language the song "Heal the World". It also featured 20 young kids carrying lit candles to whom the candidates passed on seedlings representing the future and the kind of world that they are going to receive.

The show was directed and produced by Mr. Eladio Nagrampa in cooperation with Mayor Madel, the Iriga LGU, the City Tourism Officer Engr. Nona Vanessa M. Santiago and her staff.
