Special Award:

Non-Finalist Talent; 1976 USO Troupe


I was crowned Miss Georgia 1975 on my 19th birthday.  In the Bicentennial Miss America Pageant, I received a non-finalist talent award and was selected as a member of the 1976 Miss America USO Tour.  I married Byron May of Shreveport, Louisiana and have made Shreveport my home for over 37 years.  We’ve been married for 37 years and  have two sons, Dr. Blake May and Logan May; three grandsons, and a granddaughter.  I works as the media director for my family’s advertising and marketing firm.  I enjoy performing in theatre and have garnered numerous awards for my roles in Evita, Funny Girl, Cabaret, Man of LaMancha and The Little Mermaid. I sing with a 16-piece Big Band orchestra and also give private voice and performance lessons.
