Second runner-up was Shea Lynn Thornbrugh, an agriculture business major from Nowata, Okla. She is of the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. First runner up was Erika Torres, an athletic training major from Joplin, Mo. Torres is Choctaw.

“The pageant scoring was based on an academic section and pageantry. All contestants were truly lovely ladies and scored very high in both sections,” said Natalie Long, cultural activities and academics coordinator. “The judges didn't have an easy job.”

Pageantry included an appearance section which scored the contestants on poise, question and answer, and general effect. Each section was worth 10 points for a combined total of 40 points.

The combined total of points from both categories determined who won the title of Miss Indian NEO.

“Miss Indian NEO, Sarah Tanner, will serve as an ambassador to our college, our Native American clubs and the Indian community in Miami, Okla., and I have no doubt she will do a great job,” said Claudia Little Axe, AICE director.
