Posted: Wednesday, 21 July 2010

TROY – As part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the Miss Troy University Pageant, former title holders are being sought by University officials.

During this year’s pageant, set for 2 p.m. Oct. 9 in Claudia Crosby Theater, former Miss Troy State Universities and Miss Troy Universities will be recognized. In addition, the title holders are being asked to submit photographs from their reign as well as an updated biography.

“Over the years, we lose touch with our title holders and we’re trying to make every effort to get the word out about the 40th anniversary of our program,” said Sara Jo Burks, who coordinates the Miss America preliminary pageant for TROY.

Burks said many of the former Miss TROYs have already responded to the call, however.

Burks can be contacted via email at misstroy@troy.edu or via telephone at 334-670-3451. A new “Miss Troy University Pageant” Facebook page has also been established.
