Seven of the 15 contestants at the June 18
Miss Hawai‘i pageant were HPU student, and with the
crowning of political science major Olena Rubin, HPU not
only added another queen to its ranks but swept the finalists
with first and second runners-up Amber Stone and Lyanna Tumaneng!
A month earlier, HPU’s Jennifer Fairbank had been crowned
Miss Hawai‘i USA.
