Madison Gibbs, a member of Delta Sigma Theta, was just crowned Miss Black USA.
The Miss Black USA Scholarship Pageant is a national scholarship competition for young women of African descent that was founded in 1986. Madison, who represented Miss Black North Carolina, USA in the competition, took home the crown last night at nationals.
The Greensboro native, North Carolina A&T graduate and now Howard Law student can add this accomplishment to the list of pageants she has already won including Miss James B. Dudley High School, Miss Black Piedmont and Miss Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
Through her platform project “R.S.V.P. – Reaching our Society through Virtue and Public Service” Madison plans to help her community as a role model.
“I strive to showcase (R.S.V.P) through my everyday activities and teach to the children I work with,” she told YESWEEKLY.COM in an interview earlier this year. “My platform is used as a foundation to help children, elementary-high school age, master physical, intellectual and emotional challenges.”
But that is not the only way Gibbs gives back. In true Delta spirit, she is all about service. She has worked with various organizations including Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Central Piedmont Area, Delta G.E.M.S., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Habitat for Humanity, Triad Math and Science Academy, Salvation Army’s Boys and Girls Club in Ray Warren Homes and different organizations at James B. Dudley High School.
