Darby Angle Crowned Miss JSU 2019


Sports management major Darby Angle was crowned Miss JSU on Jan. 11. She will go on to represent the university at the Miss Alabama pageant this summer. 

A second generation Gamecock, Darby is a junior hailing from Dallas, Texas. The Marching Ballerina demonstrated her range as a dancer during the pageant, delighting the audience with a humorous and high-energy tap route to Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5,” winning the talent portion of the competition. Her social impact initiative is “Precious As Rubies,” a personal platform to help women who have gone through sexual violence, specifically on their college campus, to realize their true value and purpose. 

Taylor Snider, a nursing major from Hueytown, Ala., was named first runner-up and won the Lifestyle and Fitness portion of the competition. Courtney Williams, a nutrition major from Leesburg, Ala., was second runner-up. 

JSU women have a long history of success in competition. Seven Miss Alabamas, one first runner-up to Miss America and one Miss America attended JSU.
