The 2019 Ms. Texas Senior America Pageant will be held Saturday, Aug. 3 at DoubleTree by Hilton (near Galleria) 4099 Valley View Ln. The pageant begins at 1 p.m.in the hotel ballroom. However, doors open at 11 and vendors will be located just outside the ballroom.
The Ms. Senior America Pageant is the world’s first and foremost pageant to emphasize and give honor to women 60 years old or older. It is a search for gracious and talented women who exemplify the dignity, maturity and inner beauty of all senior Americans. The pageant philosophy is based upon the belief that seniors are the foundation of America, and our most valuable treasure. From seniors’ knowledge, experience and resources, the younger generation gains the opportunity to build a better society.
Eloquently put, the senior pageant is for women who have reached the “age of elegance.”
When asked why they wanted to participate in the pageant, former teacher, Cyndi Darland, shared that she is passionate about education and advocating for unborn babies.
“I am looking forward to sharing my platform. I want my voice to be heard,” Cyndi said.
Rosalind Taylor, who just turned 60, said that she wanted to do something special to celebrate the milestone.
“Previously busy working and raising a family, I decided that now is the time to do something for me,” Rosalind said. “I have never been in a pageant, but everyone always looks so lovely. I can do this,” she said.
Texas Pageant Director Sarah Senter was Ms. Texas Senior America 2009. When asked how the pageant has changed throughout the years, Sarah said the women have always been vibrant and enthusiastic, but the talent has just gotten stronger and stronger.
“I am often thankful that I’m not competing today,” she quipped!
