During an evening reserved for celebrating community spirit, La Cañada High School junior Robin Miketta was on Thursday named Miss La Cañada Flintridge 2011.
Inspired by parents Brett and Lynette Miketta to consider a career in teaching, Miketta will lead the town's five-member Royal Court this year in their role as youth ambassadors for the city and chamber of commerce.
Miss La Cañada Flintridge 2010 Malia Mailes passed the crown to Miketta as part of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Association's 99th annual Installation and Awards Dinner, held at the tony ballroom of the La Cañada Flintridge County Club.
"I can't wait to start working with the Chamber of Commerce. The group of girls I'm with on the court are absolutely amazing, and it'll be fun throughout the year. It's something to look forward to, that's for sure," Miketta said while receiving congratulations from chamber board members, city officials and community volunteers also in attendance.
