20 Pinellas students named to Suncoasters' Junior Sungoddess Court

ST. PETERSBURG — Twenty young women, representing nearly every high school in Pinellas County, have been named to the 2011 Junior Sungoddess Court.

The scholarship program, presented by the Suncoasters of St. Petersburg, was established in 1955 to recognize high school girls in Pinellas County who are active in their schools and communities and who maintain good academic standards.

Named to the court are Darlyce Beach and Keona Welch of Gibbs High School; Kelsey Fredrickson, Zoe Green, Samantha McCuskey, Abigail Nickens and Kelly Vasbinder, all of St. Petersburg High School; Katelyn Greenleaf, Northside Christian High School; Sarah Hierl, Countryside High School; Alana Horner, St. Pete Collegiate High School; Alexis Klym, Bailey Monarch and Erin Moore, East Lake High School; Valiece Long, Clearwater High School; Mary Monk, Seminole High School; Laurel Morois, Shorecrest Preparatory School; Danielle Price, Osceola High School; Lisa Rickards, Largo High School; Lauren Russell, St. Petersburg Catholic High School; and Shante Shedrick, Lakewood High School.

The top three members of the court will be announced March 4. The 2011 Junior Sungoddess and two runners-up will receive more than $5,000 in scholarships and awards from American Momentum Bank, the Suncoasters and other sponsors.

The Suncoasters represent nearly 200 business leaders who have produced the Festival of States since 1956. The civic group also presents the All Children's Hospital Clown Alley program, the All County Music Fest, the Scholastic Art Awards, the Illuminated Night Parade for the Grand Prix and a 5K and 1-mile run.
