Shanice Street: Being Apple Queen Has Been A Blast!

Wayne Howard
News Journalist

It's been a big year for Shanice Street.  The Lincolnton High School student was selected as the 2012 Lincoln County Apple Queen last August.  She spent her senior year getting ready for graduation, preparing for college, and carrying out various activities assigned to her as the reigning Queen.

Shanice says she learned about the pageant at school.  She had considered entering a pageant before, but decided this was the one and it was time.  She says she enjoyed meeting the other girls in the pageant and made friends with several of them.  Even if she hadn't won, she says it would have been a good experience.  As it turned out, she not only won the crown, she was also chosen by the other contestants as the Congeniality winner.

Shanice was the only African-American contestant last year.  She was also the youngest and the shortest of the nine contestants.  But Shanice says she always considered herself a winner.  The 18-year-old daughter of Chariese and Gabriel Alvarado was a varsity cheerleader at Lincolnton High School,.  She was also a member of the National Honor Society, Secretary of the Beta Club, President of the Anchor Club, Vice President of the Drama Club and Student Government Treasurer.  She also participated in Interact, the Key Club and HOSA. 

An oustanding student, she plans to attend Wake Forest University this fall where she will pursue a pre-med career path.  Her favorite subjects at school?  "Anything but math!"  Shanice wants to become an Emergency Room Doctor. 

Shanice, who has a 5-year-old brother Gabriel (II), and a 3-year-old sister Rebecca, will spend her summer as a camp counselor at the Lincolnton YMCA.  If there's time, she also plans to do some reading.  "I like to read," she told us.  Her favorites?  Jane Austin, The Hunger Games and The Kite Runner. 

With all her other activities, there isn't a lot of time to watch TV.  Shanice says she liked "One Tree Hill" and "Gossip Girl"--"but of course, they're not on anymore."

To any young woman considering entering this year's pageant, Shanice says, "Go ahead!  Enjoy the experience.  You just might win!"  She did.

Applications for this year's pageant, scheduled for August 3rd at the Citizens Center, are available from members of the Business and Professional Women's Club (sponsors of the event).  The compettion is open to rising high school seniors and any young woman who will be no older than 23 by the end of September.  The contest offers scholarships to the Queen and three runnersup as well as the Miss Congeniality winner.  The contest involves evening gown, swimsuit and interview categories--but no talent competition.

Questions should be directed to Cathy Davis at 704-740-8313, Rene Moody at 980-429-0333 or Holly Perkins at 704-530-0846.
