Miss Brooke Sanders won the 2014 Miss University of Mobile pageant Saturday, Jan. 25, and will represent the University of Mobile throughout the year and in the Miss Alabama Pageant.
She was also selected as the People’s winner.
”Winning Miss University of Mobile is a dream come true,” said Sanders. “The role is so respected on and off campus. I want to fulfill this responsibility with humility, authenticity, and grace.”
Sanders, a junior sociology major from Headland, AL, performed a piano piece titled “Prelude in G Minor” for her talent. Her platform was “Princesses with a Purpose.”
By winning Miss University of Mobile, Sanders has won the opportunity to expand the influence of her platform.
“I started portraying fairytale princesses a year and a half ago at children’s hospitals, festivals, and other venues that needed a touch of magic,” said Sanders. “Being Miss UM, I have already been expanding my network. ‘Princesses with a Purpose’ also works well with the Children’s Miracle Network, which is the Miss America platform.”
The Miss University of Mobile pageant is an official qualifier sponsored by Miss America, giving Sanders the opportunity to participate in the Miss Alabama pageant June 4-7 in Birmingham.
“God has used this university to make me into the person I am today,” said Sanders. “I can give back to the university by praising the educational and spiritual development it offers to students.”
First runner-up, swimsuit, and talent winner is Tiffany Baker, a sophomore music major from Chatom, AL.
Miss Congeniality is Rachel Lucas, a sophomore intercultural studies and education major from Memphis, TN.
Brooke Sanders was crowned Miss University of Mobile 2014.
