Courtney Hudson, a junior at Highlands University, was named Miss NMHU Native American Queen last week at the school’s second such pageant.
The Miss New Mexico Highlands University Native American Pageant went smoothly for the hundred or so people who attended the event.
For the organizers, however, it was a lot of work.
“It took all day,” said Eric Bennett, who helped the Native American Club decorate the Sala de Madrid auditorium. Lights, banners and many other tasks kept the pageant committee busy all day.
