Tonya Smith, a Senior
Education major from Dunn,
N.C., has been named Miss FSU
for the remainder of the 1990-91
school year.
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. Tickets
can be picked up at the Student
Center office.
