Welcome to the 49th Annual Miss Troy University Pageant. On behalf of Troy University, thank you for your attendance and support of this wonderful event. The talented, intelligent, and attractive young women featured today represent the absolute best and brightest of TROY. Miss Troy University contestants are campus leaders, active in athletics, student government and collegiate organizations. Many of these young ladies will be future doctors, lawyers, accountants and news anchors. We are proud of each of them.

As a preliminary to the Miss Alabama Pageant, today’s event offers the contestants the opportunity to earn college scholarships to assist them in attaining their education goals. Further, the Miss Troy University Pageant is another avenue for our young people to prepare for and succeed in the competition of daily life. We thank everyone who has worked so hard to make today’s event possible.

Finally, to each Miss Troy University contestant, you are a winner! We thank you and your parents for choosing Troy University. Our very best wishes for your continued success.

Jack Hawkins, Jr., Ph.D.
