Elena LaQuatra '10, the reigning Miss Pennsylvania USA 2016, made a surprise visit to her dad's (Mr. Paul LaQuatra) English class today. As she recorded her entrance on Snapchat, the students gave her a big round of applause, clearly glad to see this Lebo grad return to her Alma Mater.
Elena was crowned Miss Pennsylvania USA 2016 last December. As a teenager, she won Miss Pennsylvania Outstanding Teen, a pageant that is part of the Miss America system and finished as second runner-up in the national contest. Then, in the USA pageant system, she won Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA.
On June 5, 2016 Elena will join 52 contestants from around the USA to compete for the title of Miss USA 2016 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. If she wins, it is on to the Miss Universe Pageant. The pageant will be televised on FOX.
A graduate of Point Park University, Elena has said that meeting the first deaf Miss America, Heather Whitestone McCallum, changed her life, since Elena has been deaf since she had bacterial meningitis as a young child. After several operations, she had a cochlear implant, and learned once again how to speak and listen at DePaul School in Pittsburgh. She lives the inspirational message left with her by Miss America who told her, 'Don't let your disability hold you back,' and to do 'whatever you want.' She shares that belief will all, especially those with disabilities. We wish Elena all the best at the Miss USA Pageant in June!
The Senior Reception, one of the milestone events leading the way to graduation, took place this week in the High School Center Court. Originally called the Senior Tea when it was first held 73 years ago, the Senior Reception gives our seniors and their family members a chance to say thank you to teachers and administrators that have shaped and influenced their lives while students at the high school. It's the first big event that starts the march to graduation. Congratulations to the Class of 2016. Enjoy your remaining days in the high school-stay safe, have fun and best of luck in the future.
