Hailing from the great ‘Garden State,’ Anna Negron is an authentic, diner-loving Jersey Girl, born and raised in Vineland. She began vocal training with Sal Dupree at the age of nine. From then on, Anna’s confidence grew and her personality was able to shine through her singing and other facets of life. She held various positions in student government during her middle school and high school years. In high school, she was able to explore her love of sports as she served as the manager for three Varsity sports: Girls’ Soccer, Girls’ Basketball and Baseball. She graduated in the Top 10 percentile from Sacred Heart High School.
A 27-year-old graduate of Seton Hall University, Anna obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Sport Management, along with completing coursework in Public Relations and Journalism. She was awarded over $50,000 in scholarships from the university and the Stillman School of Business over her four years. An avid member of the Seton Hall community, she was a part of the Seton Hall University Dance Team- “The Sapphires,” and also had the rewarding opportunity of performing the National Anthem at many of the university’s sporting events. She was a Sports Business Writer for the Stillman Exchange and was the Women’s Soccer Team manager during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. During her four years at Seton Hall, Anna held internships with the New York Mets, Bella Public Relations, IMG Fashion, the New York Knicks and Burson Marsteller. In August 2014, she obtained a position with All American Games as a Public Relations Associate, working on the nationally recognized U.S. Army All-American Bowl held in San Antonio, Texas. The annual East v. West match-up brings the top 100 high school football players from across the country together in an all-star competition. Anna currently works as a Sr. Publicist for College Sports at ESPN.
During her final semester at Seton Hall University, Anna Negron was able to become one of the first student Sport Reporters for Pirate Sports Network, allowing her the opportunity to interview players and coaches of both the men’s and women’s basketball programs. It was then that she realized she could intertwine her love of sports with her on-camera abilities, sports knowledge and colorful personality. She also served as an in-arena host for all Seton Hall Men’s Basketball games, hosting timed Trivia in the stands with fans at the Prudential Center.
An advocate of hard work and service, Anna was a part of the Miss America Organization for over five years, having held five local titles in the Miss New Jersey Education Foundation. She garnered awards in interview, talent, community service, lifestyle and fitness and evening gown. She was a preliminary talent winner in 2015, a preliminary and non-finalist talent winner in 2013, Top 10 in 2012 (swimsuit preliminary winner and state community service winner) and was 1st Runner Up to Miss New Jersey 2015. As a result of her placement, she earned the chance to compete in the National Sweetheart Pageant, where she finished in the Top 15 amongst the country’s most poised and well-rounded young women. She considers it to be one of the most humbling experiences, giving her the chance to end her pageant career on a high note. Promoting her own personal platform of Think Before You Drink: Drunk Driving Awareness as well as the Children’s Miracle Network was of great importance to her as she strives to serve as a role model to young women and men through her dedication and accomplishments.
When Anna isn’t working, she enjoys watching football and basketball, reading, good pizza, a glass of wine and anything/anyone that can make her laugh.
