Miss Smith, first runner-up in the student election held in April 1990, assumed the crown when the winner, Dawn Shropshire, did not return to school this semester, thereby resigning the position. ”My main objective," Miss Smith said of her new title, "is to let students know that Miss FSU is a significant part of the university. I plan to speak at upcoming events and help the university in academic recruiting. Miss FSU should be an ambassador for the university." Miss Smith is vice-president of Kappa Delta Pi, a member of the Student Government Association, and works as a Spanish tutor. She enjoys reading, dancing, and working with children. "Students see Miss FSU at Homecoming and then they don’t see her anymore," Miss Smith said. "I hope to give the title the respect it deserves." Miss Smith will be formally crowned at halftime of the men’s basketball game against Winston-Salem State on Jan. 28 at the Cumberland County Civic Center. A semi- formal reception honoring Miss FSU will be held Feb. 14 at the Student Center. Admission is free but tickets must be presented at the door.
