Miss Orem 2009-2010 crowned on Saturday

Daily Herald
Chelsey Ingersoll, a graduating senior from Mountain View High School, was crowned Miss Orem 2009-2010 at the annual scholarship pageant on Saturday night at the SCERA Center for the Arts in Orem. As the new Miss Orem, Ingersoll receives $2,750 in scholarship money. She plans to attend Brigham Young University this fall, and to pursue a career as a pediatric cardiologist.
First runner-up in the competition was Alexis Hatch, a sophomore at BYU majoring in music therapy, who was awarded a $1,120 scholarship. Also named as attendants and scholarship recipients were Emily Jacobsen, Graceann Jacobson and Whitney Bunker.
In the talent competition, Ingersoll performed a sizzling tango/cha-cha dance number.
In response to an on-stage question about what has been her proudest accomplishment, Ingersoll responded, "Tonight, it was walking on stage in a swimsuit." She then added, "Waking up each day with a smile" regardless of circumstances.
Ingersoll also won one of several extra scholarships given -- the $200 TIFIE (Teaching Individuals and Families Independence through Enterprise) Award. The recognition was presented by local businessman Robert Workman, who established TIFIE as a nonprofit humanitarian organization in 2007.
A $500 community service award, given by Orem's mayor and City Council, went to Chelsea Dean. The $100 contestants' award -- voted on by the pageant participants -- was awarded to Haley Johnson. Ashleigh Dickerson received the $100 award from the pageant committee for her participation and attendance at pre-pageant workshops, and Alyson Sabin was given the $100 director's award for "most growth through the pageant experience."
