CAB to host trunk show for Jarreau

Miss Southeastern 2012 Jennifer Jarreau will be previewing some of her routine and apparel before she competes at the 2012 Miss Louisiana Pageant.
The trunk show will be hosted by the Campus Activities Board (CAB) in the Student Union Theater on Thursday, June 14 at 4 p.m.
Jarreau, a middle school education major, received her crown after both Olivia Ruby and Bethany Putnam were unable to fulfill the duties as Miss Southeastern. Jarreau was the second runner up in the Miss Southeastern competition, but with her being later crowned, she has embraced the idea of representing Southeastern.
“Being able to represent the university as Miss Southeastern has been the experience of a life time,” said Jarreau. “I am so honored to represent Southeastern on campus, in the community and in the Miss Louisiana Pageant.”
As a part of her fundraising, Miss Southeastern has raised $2,133 that will be donated to local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. Jarreau has been at multiple events on campus and throughout the community, raising donations through selling raffle tickets at the annual Rock N’ Roar, hosting the Cuts for a Cause that was held in the Student Union and two Chili’s give back days. She also has a personal platform that she has raised money for, a cause that is truly close to her heart.
“Healthy Hearts Foundation is my personal platform. I chose this platform in honor of my grandfather who struggled with heart disease all his life,” said Jarreau. “The Healthy Hearts Foundation promotes the importance of living a healthy life for people of all ages and raises funds and awareness for the preventions and cures to heart disease and stroke. I have worked closely with REC Sports and Wellness to raise funds for the American Heart Association and promote awareness in the community by hosting the Womanless Beauty Pageant in January and the Heart Walk on May 4.”
Jarreau continues to work on her routine, preparing for the Miss Louisiana Pageant that will be held from June 21-23. She is grateful to have help along the way from her team and cannot wait for the competition.
“Preparations have been keeping me very busy and a little stressed to say the least, but completely worth it,” said Jarreau. “I am so blessed to have such a large support team to help me along the way.  I’m ready to see all of our hard work pay off the week of the pageant.”
Jarreau would like all the support she can get before she goes to Monroe. Win or lose, in the end it’s about the green and gold for Miss Southeastern.
“I love being able to represent the university and show my lion pride,” said Jarreau.
