About Miss FVSU:
Fort Valley State University’s campus queen, Candice Howard, is a business management student from Waycross, Ga. who hopes to inspire young women during her reign.
Howard, who said she has dreamed about being an FVSU queen since her freshman year, said the Miss FVSU competition held April 2016 taught her important lessons about herself.
“It was challenging, but I got through the competition,” she said. “It taught me about strengths that I didn’t even know I had. Because I was passionate about everything, it came easily as a breeze.”
Howard is involved in several organizations on campus including the National Council of Negro Women, the National Association of Black Accountants and the Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Society.
Miss FVSU takes an active role as an FVSU ambassador by helping the university with its recruitment efforts.
“I’ve always had a love for inspiring young women,” Howard said. “My only passion has been to mentor and guide girls into becoming polished, young ladies. After I graduate, I plan to invest in a nonprofit organization that will be centered around mentoring young girls and helping them to become elegant young ladies.”
