Coral Springs resident Alana Scheuerer has been crowned this year’s Miss South Florida Fair, making her eligible to compete in the Miss Florida pageant held in Lakeland, Florida, this June.

The fair pageant victory by Scheurer, who served as Miss St. Petersburg the past two years, earned her a prize of $5,000 to use toward her existing student loans.

She grew up in Coral Springs and attended Maplewood Elementary, Sawgrass Springs Middle, and Coral Glades High schools before heading to Florida State University and earning her bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management, as well as a master’s degree in American dance.
