Recent estimates from the Pew Research Center suggest that community colleges enroll close to half - or more than 6 million - of all U.S. undergraduates. These institutions often give students numerous academic opportunities, including small class sizes and distance learning programs.
Elizabeth West, a graduate of Coastal Bend College in Kingsville, Texas, was named Mrs. Corpus Christi by the International Pageant system, the Corpus Christi Caller Times reports. West will represent the greater Nueces County area at the Mrs. Texas International Pageant.
The grand prize is $15,000 in cash and gifts, and the opportunity to proceed to the Mrs. International Competition.
The International Pageant system has been developed to promote today's married women, their accomplishments and commitment to family and marriage, according to the official website. Many women have found that this system provides them with an opportunity to work with their husbands and families to become positive role models. The goal of the pageant is to showcase women 21 to 56 years old, who have been married at least six months, and who are residents of the state or citizens of the country they represent.
