Past Winner-Miss Cardinal City pageant

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- San Bernardino High School is seeking sponsors for its 10th annual Miss Cardinal City pageant, scheduled for Saturday, September 20 at Sturges Center for the Fine Arts. Bilingual School Outreach Worker Jamie Rios founded the Miss and Mr. Cardinal City pageants to promote school pride and self-esteem among the students. The pageants have blossomed into a chance for students to develop leadership skills and become involved in their community.

Miss Cardinal City contestants, all high school seniors, compete in both on- and off-stage events. A panel of community judges will rank contestants in the September 20 on-stage events, including evening gown, interview, and sportswear. Off-stage rankings include grades and attendance.

Rios hopes local businesses will support the school and young ladies by sponsoring the event with cash or in-kind donations. Miss Cardinal City 2014-2015 will represent San Bernardino High School alongside reigning Mr. Cardinal Samuel Moreno and his court, Rosalio Cruz and Joseph Ortega.

Sponsors for the Mr. Cardinal City 2014-2015 pageant, held in April, included Toyota of San Bernardino, Fairview Ford, D’Arca Formal Wear, San Bernardino Councilwoman Virginia Marquez, Pat Williams of Angels’ Closet Charities, First Presbyterian Church, Mr. & Mrs. Robert Hickey, Trophy House, Mr. Jim Smith, The Way World Outreach, Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Arellano, The Sun newspaper, Dr. and Mrs. Michael A. Lawrence, San Bernardino High Class of 1952, and Stater Bros. Markets.

Interview by Noelle Lilley and Ernest Carter 

RIVERSIDE, CA- One of the greatest gifts that you can give someone through the career of communications is giving them an inspiring message that will help them live out their purpose to fulfill their life in a positive way.

Since undergoing a battle with a cancerous Ovarian Cyst and Type 2 Diabetes in 2012, Radio Personality and Author Diana Wehbe used her outlet iHeartRadio and 99.1 KGGI as a platform to carry her message to the masses. Through prayer and patience, she fought her battle by changing her diet, along with her surroundings, and was able to lose 100 pounds in a span of 10 months. This then led her to launch her foundation, The Purpose Foundation, which has inspired and educated students and families alike to change the way they are living and the way they look at Faith, Food and Fitness.

On Wednesday, July 2, WSS News interns had the pleasure of interviewing and speaking with Wehbe about her career, her battle with her illness and her foundation. To view the interview, click here. For more information on The Purpose Foundation, visit www.PurposeTeam.org.
