A daughter of American Samoa, Tianna Nomura McMoore Timu Tuamoheloa will represent Nevada at the national Miss America Collegiate Pageant in Orlando, FL. in July. Tianna is the daughter of Simi Tuamoheloa, Jr of Iliili and Salamasina McMoore Tuamoheloa of Leloaloa and Utulei.
 
As the current Miss Nevada Collegiate America 2014 Tianna makes personal appearances throughout Nevada during her reign where she speaks for and to one of Nevada's largest and most important constituencies, its young college women.
 
Jackie McKenna, Nevada State Director for the pageant points out that Tianna stands as a testament to the accomplishments of a bright, determined and responsible college student. “Her inspiration to her family and the community, her pursuit of excellence, and her indomitable spirit — all of these qualities comprise the essence of Nevada's Collegiate America Pageant,” she says.
 
The first in a series of fundraisers to help Tianna defray the costs of the competition is an Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser being held in Las Vegas this coming Sunday, March 2 8-10a.m. at the Applebee’s at 820 Warm Springs Rd.  For tickets or more information call (705) 541-4413 or email: MissNevadaCollegiate2014@gmail.com

Tianna is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s degree for Music Performance (concentration on Voice) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas as a third year student where she is very active within the community. Being a member of Panhellenic sorority, Alpha Gamma Delta, helps her to achieve over 100 hours of community service per semester.
 
The Miss Collegiate America Pageant focuses the attention of the nation and the world on the importance of academics and social graces for collegiate women with the winner of the national title receiving a $10,000 scholarship prize.
 
Best of luck Tianna, American Samoa is proud of you.
