The theme for this year's pageant was "Glitz and Glamour." The pageant is a fundraiser for UNCF scholarships for Claflin students.
Cain is a biology major with a minor in chemistry. She is also a member of the Alice Carson Tisdale Honors College and Pre-Alumni Council. She hopes to pursue a career as an optometrist after she graduates from Claflin.
Fulmore is majoring in marketing and management. Her career goal is to build a marketing and securities firm that will encourage other young professionals to join the field.
"Both students are outstanding scholars who possess an abundance of talent, beauty and poise," said Tammy McCottry, pageant coordinator and director of special events at Claflin University. "Their hard work, dedication and commitment to advancing the cause of UNCF and Claflin will contribute to more students receiving an opportunity to earn a college degree."
