Miss UVI 2019-2020, Sherquan Henry, will compete in the 2019 National Black College Alumni (NBCA) Hall of Fame Queens pageant from Sept. 25 to Sept. 29, in Atlanta, Ga., at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Henry will compete against college queens from Historically Black Colleges and University’s (HBCU) around the nation for the title of Miss NBCA Hall of Fame. This year marks the 34th year of the competition.

Henry, age 20 is from St. Thomas and attends UVI on the St. Thomas Campus. She is a junior majoring in Business Administration. Her career aspiration is to become a corporate lawyer.

She is vying for the crown on a platform entitled, “Discovering self-identity through cultural exploration.” “I am truly honored to represent the astounding HBCU that has taught me that student uniqueness is the root of a great culture and that my success can only be limited by me,” Henry said. “As a student at UVI, I have learnt that excellence is not limited to the size of your University, and I intend to demonstrate that.” While Henry is excited about the show in general, the talent segment is one that she is anticipating most.
