Little Sisters await an evening to remember

POULSBO — As Miss Kitsap 2005 Diosa Warner gives her crown to her successor tonight, one young girl will embark on a year-long journey as the new queen’s Little Sister.

Miss Kitsap’s Little Sister will be her constant companion on travels throughout the state and to the Miss Washington pageant and promotes Kitsap County.

All of the Little Sisters, who will receive a tiara from Dahlquist’s Fine Jewelry, will participate in local parades and a number of other events that are part of the program designed to provide mentoring opportunities for young women.

One of the aims of the program, which began seven years ago, is that Little Sisters will step onto the stage as contests in the pageant, which annually awards more than $20,000 in scholarship money.

The 2006 Miss Kitsap Little Sisters are:

• De’Ana Reynaga of Bremerton, daughter of Michelle and Noe Reynaga. Little Sister to Kasia Alexander.

• Taylor Jakubowski of Silverdale, daughter of Kelly and Jason Jakubowski. Little Sister to Krystle Spoon.

• Peyton Sturgeon of Kingston, daughter of Daneen and Scott Sturgeon. Little Sister to Lauren Grummel.

• Lacey Jo Ketner of Poulsbo, daughter of Leanne and Christopher Ketner. Little Sister to Chanté Martinelli.

• Kassandra Penner of Poulsbo, daughter of Lori Penner. Little Sister to Haylee Ellis.

• Mandalyn Van Swearingen of Poulsbo, daughter of Heather and Michael Van Swearingen. Little Sister to Kristen Eddings.

• Arianna Griffel of Poulsbo, daughter of Peggy and David Griffel. Little Sister to Sheila Spiker.
