This summer, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated hosted their 56th Biennial Boule in Cleveland, OH. One of the convention highlights was the annual Annie Neville Talent Competition, which gives undergraduate members the opportunity to perform and compete for the title of Miss Annie Neville. Micah and Mariah Smith, members of the Iota Psi chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. here at the University of Michigan participated in this year’s competition after winning at the sorority’s central region conference back in March.
Competing against representatives from each of the four other regions, the twin sisters performed a spoken word piece, captivating the crowd. After a delayed deliberation and the announcement of the runner-up, Micah and Mariah’s talent earned them the title of Miss Annie Neville 2016, deeming them two of the most talented undergraduates in the sorority! Their accomplishment has resulted in them receiving recognition and congratulation from friends, family, and other members of the NPHC. “This was honestly one of the best experiences of my life,” says, Mariah of attending her first Boule conference and competing alongside her sister. The two look forward to competing again in 2018 at the next Boule conference!
