For Immediate Release: March
Miss Oklahoma 2007 Makenna Smith was honored by the
Senate Honors Miss Oklahoma
The Oklahoma State Senate gave unanimous approval
to a resolution honoring Makenna Smith, Miss Oklahoma 2007. The
resolution was requested by Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan
and Co-President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee, with all of the members
of the Senate co-authoring the measure.
“Makenna has done a wonderful job representing our state and
promoting a very important cause—her platform has been seat
belt safety, and I’m sure she’s been an effective spokesperson
for this important public safety issue,” said Morgan, D-Stillwater.
While completing her journalism degree at the University of Oklahoma
in 2005, Makenna interned for the Senate Communications Division,
assisting with press releases and other assignments.
“It is always gratifying to see how many of our former pages
and interns have gone on to accomplish great things for Oklahoma,
and certainly Miss Oklahoma is no exception,” said Coffee,
R-Oklahoma City. “We’re all very proud of Makenna, and
we’re confident we’ll be hearing more from her in the
years to come.”
Makenna said the year had been an exciting one for her.
“It has been an absolutely incredible year, getting to represent
the state of Oklahoma, especially during the Centennial year, so
it has been a huge honor for me,” said Makenna. “There
was a sense of Oklahoma pride throughout the year, so I’m
really glad I got to experience that as Miss Oklahoma.”
Before winning the crown, Makenna had begun work on a second degree
in nursing at Oklahoma City University, and plans to resume her
studies when her reign ends later this year.
