Board of Directors

The first few years of the board was a struggle and board individuals covered expenses for the competition. From a board of three, today we have an average of 20 board members annually. Today, all expenses are covered by the Miss OCU Scholarship Organization. 

No other local competition in Oklahoma, and very few nationwide, enjoy such a financial independence at the Miss OCU Competition. Directors and associates all over the country ask if they can judge the Miss OCU Competition. The Miss OCU Scholarship Board is keenly organized, meets on a regular monthly basis and has a majority of members who have served five years or more. 

Every year, we have a delegation of board members who take time off from their jobs to attend the Miss Oklahoma Competition Week, at their own expense, to accompany Miss OCU. In the past few years, many of our board members have attended the Miss America Competition in Atlantic City not only to experience the excitement, but also to learn more about the system through seminars and trade shows.
