Francheska Erika Cal of Greenwood has been chosen to participate in the 2012 Miss Junior Teen Sacramento Pageant.

“I chose to participate for something different and to make new friends,” said Francheska, 14 and an eighth-grade student at Northside School. “I just moved here (from Destin, Fla.) in January. This is a great honor for me.”

She was recommended for the pageant by someone who she and her mother, Arlene, don’t even know, but they are glad to participate.

“I am very proud of her,” said Arlene. “Within a week we received the letter, had an interview and she was accepted to participate.”

As part of the competition, Francheska is seeking sponsors that will help her pay for her part in the pageant, which takes place Saturday, April 28 at the Sacramento Convention Center.

If she wins her category, 13-15 years, she will go to Orlando, Fla. for the national competition, and most likely, a visit to her former hometown. Francheska was born in Panama City Beach, Fla.

She has several accomplishments from her days in Florida. As a student, she won first place in a group exhibit, “Traveling Florida;” was listed as a “Florida Young Scholar” in 2009; was a class representative in 2008-09; received the citizenship award from the Boys and Girls Club in Panama City Beach; came in second place in the county-wide essay writing contest, “What Christmas means to me” in 2008; received the People’s Choice Award for her art interpretation of the Titanic in 2008; modeled for Strasburg Children in 2007; and won four gymnastic awards from 2000-05.

Francheska states in her brochure that she provides to sponsors, “I am in this pageant to become the best me I can be; learn who I am. Future is a never ending of possibilities. I plan to take those possibilities and keep my future bright.”

Anyone interested in sponsoring Francheska can call 823-8826 for more information.

She is the granddaughter of Vincent Cal, currently in litigation over a store he opened and continues to operate without a business license because of zoning changes to the Greenwood property on which the store sits.
