Campbellsville University’s Carmen Drake, a junior from Hodgenville, was crowned Valentine Pageant Queen at the  annual pageant Feb. 13 in The Gheens Recital Hall.

Drake, who represented Delta Omicron, also won Miss Congeniality. She is majoring in music education.

Drake sang “O Mio Babbino Caro” from the comic opera, Gianni Schicchi. The aria tells the story of Lauretta, the daughter of a poor man, who begs her father to help her marry her sweetheart.

Drake will go on to represent Campbellsville University in this year’s Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival in May in Pikeville.
