On February fifth, Ellie Stafford won the crown at the 45th annual contest. Stafford is a strategic communication major in the College of Liberal Arts and Communication, and a Chancellor’s List student. Stafford also won the Beth Damphousse Talent Award and the Kelly Damphousse Interview Award. She received scholarship money from Arkansas State and she will compete this summer in the Miss Arkansas competition. I talked with Stafford in this interview and asked her about her love for Arkansas State University, which she says started as a little girl. Click here for the entire interview.
