Miss Oklahoma Megan Gold’s journey for the Miss America crown has come to an end.
Although she didn’t make the Top 10, Megan was recognized this week for her fundraising efforts.
Megan won the Miss Oklahoma title in June of 2022 and was proud to represent where she is from on a national stage.
She has continued to serve Oklahomans throughout her journey to compete for the crown.
Through her social impact initiative, Megan strives to end senior hunger and provide community where there is isolation. She’s lived in a senior community in Tulsa, where she said she’s learned how to better understand senior citizens’ needs.
