Introducing the New Miss Black Texas USA 2011 Savannah Williams
Savannah Williams of Missouri City, Texas was officially named the new Miss Black Texas USA on Monday, August 15, 2011.
After Miss Black Texas USA Ocielia Gibson was crowned Miss Black USA 2011 on Monday, August 8, 2011, in Washington, D.C. the Miss Black Texas USA crown needed a new head upon which to rest. That head belongs to runner-up Savannah Williams.
“I am honored and ecstatic to have the opportunity to represent my state as Miss Black Texas USA 2011. I will take this position as a learning experience and a chance for personal growth. I am also excited for the chance to make an impact on and a positive change in my community and state,” said Savannah.
The new Miss Black Texas USA Savannah Williams is a twenty-one year old student at the University of Houston who is majoring in mathematics and minoring in education. Her future aspirations include being a mathematics teacher and pursuing an acting career. Her passion for education led her to choose education as her platform. “I will use this title to promote an organization I hold dear to my heart, Girls for A Change, and to implement my platform of promoting education in the youth,” said the new Miss Black Texas USA. She also hopes to inspire girls to pursue their dreams and to discover their inner queen.
Savannah will hold the Miss Black Texas USA title until she crowns her successor on Sunday, November 13, 2011 at the upcoming Miss Black Texas USA Pageant at the Crowne Plaza North Houston Hotel. Young ladies between the ages of 5-40 will compete for 5 different titles, one of which is Miss Black Texas USA. The winners of the Miss Black Texas USA and the Miss Black Texas USA Talented Teen pageants will be eligible to compete for the national titles in August 2012, at the Miss Black USA Pageant. Hopefully, Texas can bring the national title back home again.
The Miss Black Texas USA Pageant is the official preliminary competition for the Miss Black USA Pageant. Recruitment is currently under way for the Miss Black Texas USA Princess (ages 5-9), Miss Black Texas Preteen (ages 10-12), Miss Black Texas USA Talented Teen (ages 13-18), Miss Black Texas USA (ages 18-27) and Ms. Black Texas (ages 21-40) pageants.
