Two students deemed to have demonstrated poise, personality and confidence have been crowned Belleville High School's first-ever Mr. and Miss Belleville.

“I am extremely grateful for this title. I worked very hard and prepared so much that night, yet I never expected to have the appreciation I have now towards becoming the 1st Miss Belleville!” Lindsay, a junior, said.

Gary Politano, an educator at Belleville, orchestrated the event using his previous experience with Ms. Universe pageants.
