Tourist Board partners with Miss Turks and Caicos Universe beauty organization
Published on December 20, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

The Turks and Caicos Tourist Board has announced its partnership with the newly established Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Beauty Organization Ltd (MTCUBO), to produce the upcoming 2013 Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Beauty Pageant, under the direction of Saint George Fashion House (SGFH).

The newly incorporated Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Beauty Organization has a board of highly educated, qualified and vibrant minds that are all dedicated to a new standard for the franchise. They have brought to the table a plan; one that incorporates a new logo for the organization, new rules and regulations for contestants, new judging criteria that mimics that of the Miss Universe franchise and strategic plans to produce a calendar of events that is not only exciting to watch, but to be a part of.

The MTCUBO Board consists of: Kazz Forbes, president and managing director; Tremmaine Harvey, vice president and legal advisor; Shaveena Been, financial controller and recruitment and training officer; Takara Bain, public relations officer and general secretary; Romell Phillips, production coordinator; Weinika Ewing, head of sales and marketing and recruitment and training officer; Romaine Missick, head of image and beauty; Samantha Williams-Glinton, head of entertainment and Cynclair Musgrove, head of personal development.

In a brief statement, Forbes said, “The Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Beauty Organization will set unprecedented standards for the Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Beauty Pageants and our events. We as an organization don’t want to just produce a beauty queen or an ambassador, but a legacy of women that will act as activist, role models and motivators for future generations of women from the Turks and Caicos Islands.”

With production plans underway, the MTCUBO has launched a new website -- -- numerous social media pages including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, with daily updates and well produced recruitment advertisements, with much more to come.

Ralph Higgs, chairman of the Tourist Board, said, “Considering all that has already been done, and the plan that has been placed before us by MTCUBO, we at the Tourist Board think that this is the right direction for the Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Franchise and are excited to partner with this group. We are looking forward to see what the MTCUBO and its board have in store for us in the near future and pledge our support 100% in making this an event that will be recognized internationally! We also take the opportunity to laud past committees responsible for setting the foundation for previous Miss Turks and Caicos Pageants and their efforts in bringing us to where we are now.”
