It was a beautiful night for some very special young women at the Ladysmith Ambassador Coronation on April 27 at the Frank Jameson Community Centre.
The seven candidates vying for the Ambasasador and vice-ambassador titles were Jena Francis, Jordyn Dashwood, Selena Borgerson, Josie Tinney, Sabrena de Wit, Katherine Huard and Kennedy Jessome.
Congratulations to Ambassador Kennedy Jessome, Ladysmith Vice Ambassador Josie Tinney, and Ladysmith Vice Ambassador (and Miss Congeniality) Selena Borgerson. Ladysmith & District Credit Union gave out two $600 bursaries to the outgoing Vice Ambassadors and a $800 bursary to the outgoing ambassador. Dave and Cathy Stalker provided $200 awards to the first place awards for speech and talent.
The Ladysmith ambassador program is open to youth grades 11 and 12 for residents of Ladysmith and area. The program works to foster self-esteem, leadership, and community spirit.
