Sunday, October 27th we welcomed our very first titleholders to the MMC family. Nicole & I cannot say enough about the amazing class of women who competed for Miss Mississippi Crown & Miss Mississippi Crown's Outstanding Teen. We were absolutely blown away by our 2020 competitors - our judges definitely had their hands full choosing a winner out of such a qualified group of women.
There's no better way to start the recap of Sunday's show than with a massive THANK YOU! This would not have been possible without the support of our volunteers, our board & our amazing sponsors. Friends, just look at that space! The Center for Living Arts was so incredibly welcoming to all our ladies & their families during the day's rehearsals. And we are proud to say we packed the house! Another thank you to our MAO friends & the QC community for coming out to support our first show. We heard so many lovely comments following regarding the show itself, but also these awesome women & their talents.
Please take a moment to enjoy the photos from our sponsor, Say Uncle Photography, below. Stephen & Raymond did such a wonderful job capturing the excitement of our 2020 production. To view additional images from our 2020 show or purchase prints of your favorite lady, reach out to them here!

We are so incredibly blessed with two AMAZING titleholders for 2020. I feel strongly that we will undoubtedly see both these women perform extremely well at their state competitions come June. Again, thank you to everyone who made this moment possible - this was not accomplished alone.
