We are heartbroken to learn of the disparaging comments made by members of the Miss America Organization Board of Directors. The comments were made and the spirit in which they were made do not represent the views of the thousands of Miss California volunteers, contestants, and titleholders. Now that key members of the Miss America Board have resigned, we hope the integrity of the Miss America Organization is restored so that this iconic program can continue its longstanding tradition of empowering and educating women.
As always, the Miss California Organization remains dedicated to maintaining the mission of our state program which is to promote education and achievement opportunities for women in the State of California while fostering participation in community service.
