In 2013, The CROWN Group or Cultivating and Refining Outstanding Women Now, was created from the vision of our Founder and CEO Angela T. Clark.

Her personal story of participation in the Miss America Scholarship Organization afforded her the opportunity to travel to over 70 countries and all 50 states as a performer, dancer, choreographer, writer and producer. 


But there is another reason Angela is so passionate about helping develop and mentor young women be a part of the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization. The scholarship money she won as a candidate allowed her to complete her undergraduate degrees debt free.

Eight years later, our organization holds several local official preliminary franchises in the Miss South Carolina and Miss America Scholarship Organizations. The Miss America Scholarship Organization, the largest scholarship provider to young women in the world,  makes over $10 million in scholarship assistance available to contestants each year.  Young ladies from across the state will be competing for the opportunity to represent Orangeburg County in the Miss South Carolina and Miss South Carolina Teen competitions held next summer in Columbia, South Carolina.
