Julie Barber '00 (Theatre Studies) was crowned Miss New Jersey, on Saturday night in Atlantic City, NJ. Her next challenge: to break the dry spell and be the first Miss New Jersey to be named Miss America since Suzette Charles took over for Vanessa Williams in 1984. The only other Miss New Jersey to be crowned Miss America was Bette Cooper in 1937.
This year's Miss America competition will be held on Saturday, September 22, in Atlantic City, NJ. MSU wishes Miss Barber the best of luck!
