Crowning moment—Mary Kathryn Gaines (third from left) of Heflin was crowned Miss Birmingham-Southern College 2006 on Oct. 29 following casual, talent, swimsuit, and evening wear competitions in the BSC Theatre. The five contestants also participated in an on-stage interview. Gaines, a senior political science major, also won the swimsuit competition and received the Neal and Anne Berte Community Service Award for her platform on the Make a Wish Foundation. Her talent was a vocal. Other participants in the pageant were (from left) Alexa Jones, Miss Alabama 2005 and a 2003 BSC graduate, who was pageant host; Carlon Alexandra, a junior dance education major from Muscle Shoals, first runner-up; Gaines; Lucia White, a senior music composition major from Huntsville; Marian Wehby, a sophomore interdisciplinary biology/psychology major from Birmingham who won Miss Congeniality; and Shelby Claire Bowling, a freshman vocal performance major from Mobile who won the talent portion.
Trick or treat?—It was more treats than tricks for about 1,000 people who attended the Birmingham-Southern annual Halloween on the Hilltop festival held on the Residence Hall Quad Oct. 31. More than 800 hot dogs, 1,200 cans of soft drinks, 250 bottles of water, 500 snack packs of Halloween Pringles, hot chocolate, and lots of candy were handed out. The college's Panhellenic Council sponsors the event for the children of faculty and staff, as well as students from area schools. Several student groups on campus set up booths of games and goodies for the children. Other events included a haunted house, trick or treating in a residence hall, and a costume contest. Pictured here are little girls showing off their Halloween costumes and enjoying the festivities.
