CU Staff Member Named Miss Black Oklahoma USA 2014

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ Cameron University staff member Taylor Thompson has been named Miss Black Oklahoma USA 2014.

She will represent her home state at the national Miss Black USA Pageant in Washington, D.C. next August.  Thompson, a CU alumna, was named to the state title as a Delegate-At-Large following an interview and evaluation process, as there is no Oklahoma state pageant. As Miss Black Oklahoma USA, Thompson is available for performance and speaking engagements.

"Becoming Miss Black Oklahoma USA has been a goal of mine since 2007," says Thompson. "I am so blessed to have the opportunity to represent my state for the next year and during the national pageant in August. The Miss Black USA system has a national partnership with The Heart Truth Campaign, and I will spend my year of service encouraging women to take control of their heart health as well as speaking about my platform, building self-worth. Miss Black USA queens rise above their circumstances and into their greatness, and I am honored to be a part of this network of smart, talented and ambitious young women."

Thompson, who was named Miss Black CU in 2008, earned a B.A. in Communication in 2010. She joined the CU staff in March 2011 as an admissions counselor and is currently the Coordinator of Diversity Affairs.  She is pursuing a Master of Human Relations degree from the University of Oklahoma. A talented singer, she is currently collaborating to produce her first EP. 

The Miss Black USA Pageant promotes education and leadership by providing scholarships opportunities to its winners.

To schedule Thompson for a performance or speaking engagement, send an email to missblackokusa2014@gmail.com.
