Georgia Frazier, Miss Oklahoma 2015, is in Altus this week for the Miss Altus Pageant. The Altus pageant will be held this Saturday Feb. 20 at the Altus City Auditorium. (See a special Miss Altus Pageant section in today’s edition of the Altus Times.)
Miss Oklahoma is participating in some of the pre-pageant activities while here. She is also visiting several local schools. On Tuesday she visited the students at Roosevelt Elementary School. She talked to the kids about a variety of topics including bullying, respect, health, school, good decisions and what it’s like being Miss Oklahoma. The kids also got to dance the “Whip Whip Nae Nae” song with Miss Oklahoma as well as take some selfies with her.
Frazier is no stranger to Southwest Oklahoma. She accompanied Miss Oklahoma Taylor Treet as Miss Outstanding Teen in 2009, “It is neat to return to Altus and see some familiar faces,” said Frazier.
Frazier said the Miss Altus pageant gives young ladies confidence, and helps them to overcome pressure from our society to be “model perfect.”
Her five-year journey of state pageants earned her the 2015 Miss Oklahoma title, “Seeing my parents’ faces as I was crowned is a very special memory,” she said. She has traveled over 33,000 miles of Oklahoma, visiting elementary schools and mentoring over 40,000 students. Frazier says, her second best Miss Oklahoma memory has been the schools and students.
Frazier will turn her Miss Oklahoma title over this summer, but she has multiple opportunities awaiting her. First and foremost she plans to enter graduate school and become a sports agent.
When asked what kind of advice or words of encouragement she had for the Miss Altus contestants, she said, “Always be yourself with everyone, and stay true to yourself and your heart ,because you’re beautiful and confident, and that’s enough. Good luck and I cant wait for Saturdays pageant.”
