Former Miss Rome

Each year one girl will walk away with a local crown, compete at Miss New York (possibly win!), and at the end of her year- she will pass the crown on to the next girl. But these amazing, smart, beautiful, and talented women should not be forgotten. They are an important part of the Miss New York legacy.

In 1953, the Jaycees group in Rome, NY sent a representative to compete for the title of Miss New York State at the pageant in Binghamton. This was the only year a Miss Rome has competed. She won the title of Miss New York State and competed with Joan Kaible (Miss New York City) in Atlantic City. Joan was first runner up.
