The newest court for Miss Seal Beach was crowned on Sunday at the Performing Arts Center at Los Alamitos High School. “Be the Good,” crowned the City of Seal Beach’s Jr. Teen and Miss Seal Beach 2019.
Returning Miss Teen Seal Beach 2018, Chelsea Linton, was crowned Miss Seal Beach along with her court members Isabel Tuman and Delysia Sanchez. Savannah Smith received the crown for Miss Teen Seal Beach along with her returning court member Breezy Wehring.
Jr. Miss Seal Beach was awarded to returning Jr. Miss Seal Beach Court member Hallie Alcantar and her court members Skylar Bachelor and Maddie Mark.
The representatives will spend the next 12 months serving the community as ambassadors supporting all major events in Seal Beach, including ribbon cuttings, mixers, the Car Show, Thanksgiving breakfast at St. Anne’s, Christmas Tree lighting, Leisure World Expo, Run Seal Beach, Band on the Sand and the Chili Cook Off on Main.
“Be the Good” has also branched out to support Ronald McDonald House next to Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, where the girls prepare brunch each month for the families whose children are receiving treatment. They also visit the VA hospital in Long Beach where the girls coordinate bingo with the patients where they are able to win canteen vouchers, allowing them to shop at the hospital’s general store where they can purchase food, toiletries and even clothing.
“Be the Good” is an organization that offers the young women of the community the ability to get in front of city leaders and business owners, giving them skills needed in the future. Director Rosie Ritchie said, it’s a great feeling when we receive letters and emails from past ladies/members sharing how this experience has polished their skills landing jobs, college acceptance letters and various life goals upon leaving the program. The members/girls are committed to a 12-month term where they serve as city ambassadors receiving over 250 community service hours.
