Keiser University Congratulates Alumna and Spirit Team Coach for Recent Pageant Titles

Keiser University congratulates Laura Pucker, Flagship campus Spirit Team Coach and Tiffany Rae Tio, a West Palm Beach Campus Occupational Therapy Assistant program alumna for earning their recent United States Continental Pageant titles. Pucker, from St. Louis Park, Minnesota and Tio, an Albany New York native, were recently crowned Mrs. and Ms. Florida at the competition held in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

With each contestant competing in the categories of Opening Number, Private Interview, Fitness Competition, and Evening Gown, Pucker and Tio shined as they walked the stage to become state title holders. “Our Keiser University leadership and administrative members always support my entrepreneurial endeavors in production, marketing and entertainment as well as our spirit squad goals and achievements,” said Pucker who’d recently led the team to the Small Collegiate National Championship.

Tio, who was also crowned Ms. Photogenic, is currently working as an occupational therapist and a volunteer. She looks forward to becoming an advocate and mentor for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) by educating and helping to raise funds for school system practitioners.

The pair look forward to competing for their United States Continental national titles in Palm Beach Gardens next year. The US Continental Pageant was developed to recognize the modern woman of the 21st century and promotes women with intelligence, integrity, strong moral values, and inner beauty.
