PINE BLUFF, Ark. (UAPB) – Alexis Cole, Spring 2014 University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) graduate and 84th Miss UAPB is one of 10 campus queens to appear in the September issue of Ebony Magazine as part of their HBCU Queens feature.
“My experience being featured in Ebony Magazine as one of the Top 10 HBCU Queens was extremely overwhelming!,” exclaimed the Memphis, Tennessee native. “It was truly an honor to be in the presence of so many influential African-American young ladies."
The queens were also able to meet the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, who was extremely outgoing and charismatic. The photo shoot was also a treat, according to Alexis.
“They treated us like true royalty. From the designer clothes we wore for the shoot to the celebrity hair and make-up artist who made us look beautiful, the entire experience was amazing!”
