Miss Kauai Veteran 2015:
Competing against 10 equally beautiful and highly qualified applicants, Ms. Deanna Sloger, a senior representing Island School, has been selected as Miss Kauai Veteran - 2015. Deanna will spend the year of her reign attending various veteran functions around the island. In her essay Deanna wrote of veterans, “These men and women put their lives on the line every day that they were on duty. They were and are still some of the most selfless and serving people you will ever meet and we should acknowledge them for their sacrifice whenever we get a chance, not just on special days.” Congratulations to Deanna and her proud parents Thom and Dora Sloger of Eleele.
