66 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 11 - March 14, 2005 Miss Delaware USA to compete for Miss USA April 11 SHEENA BENTON Sheena Benton, Miss Delaware USA 2005, will compete for the rifle of Miss USA on April 11, in Baltimore, Md. Fifty-one women, one representing each state and the District of Columbia, will compete in three areas of compe- tition: personal interview, evening gown and swimsuit. For the first- time ever, the 54th annual Miss USA pageant will be broadcast live from the Hippodrome Theater in Baltimore, on the NBC televi- sion network. Should Benton win the Miss USA fl0e, she would be the first Delaware delegate since 1999 to win a national rifle, when Ashley Coleman of Dover brought the Miss Teen USA crown home to the First State. .Benton, a 23-year-old Milford native now residing in Wilming- ton, is a 2004 graduate of the Uni- versity of Delaware with a bache- lors of arts degree in psychology and sociology. A skilled and prac- ticing artist, Benton won the Best of Show award at the 1999 Sussex County Art Exhibit when she was only 19 years old. She was home- coming queen of her high school, owns the key to her hometown, and has been honored as a Horatio Alger National Scholar. She be- lieves her strongest talents are he resilience, her determination, and her sense of humor, which she re- lies on to get her through tough situations. "I feel these are my strongest talents, because they al- low me to work towards a goal, not give up, and when there is a bump in the road, to keep smil- ing." Benton has a devoted civic side as well, and actively supports a long list of community charities and causes, including Toys for Tots, St. Jude's Children's Hospi- tal, A.I. DuPont Children's Hospi- tal, and the Give to Live Founda- tion.
