Congratulations to Barbara Travis, a Mississippi Beauty who happens to be the Executive Director of the Mississippi World Trade Center (or is it the other way around?), for placing 1st Runner-up at the 2009 Ms. Senior America pageant, which was held in Atlantic City October 4-8. Barbara was crowned 2009 Ms. Senior Mississippi in June. She has also been named as one of Mississippi’s Leading Business Women by the Mississippi Business Journal.
Congrats also to Paula Burke Lee, a classmate of mine from the Jackson Central High School Class of 1966, who was named Miss Congeniality in the 2009 Ms. Texas Senior America pageant.
