The Miss Rancho Bernardo Scholarship Pageant recently gave young women a chance to demonstrate both beauty and brains as they represented their community. “I am always impressed with how well all of the young ladies do,” expressed Pageant Director Lynn Ross. “I wish I had a crown for them all.” The Miss RB Teen crown was awarded to Isabella Ortiz, a 16-year-old junior at Rancho Bernardo High School (RBHS), with Maddie Levesque as runner-up. Julia Moluf, a 17-year-old junior at RBHS, was crowned Miss RB. Amanda Behling was runner-up. The pageant’s primary sponsors were the Rancho Bernardo Business Association and the Rotary Club of Rancho Bernardo. “A personal thank you to the RB Inn for being such a great host, to all of the contestants for making the judges’ role a very hard job, and to all of my judges,” said Lynn.
