Miss Arizona 2006 Hilary Griffith, a 20-year-old Journalism Major at Arizona State University, was crowned Miss Arizona 2006 Saturday night. Griffith, a vocalist and a graduate of Cactus High School in Phoenix, will spend the next year increasing awareness and community action towards her platform, ‘Strength Over Silence: Rape Awareness And Recovery.’ Her career ambition is to obtain a Master’s Degree and become a Broadcast Journalist. Griffith will next represent Arizona at the 2006 Miss America Scholarship Competition to be held both in Los Angeles and in Las Vegas and to be televised later this year on Country Music Television.

Along with the honor and title of Miss Arizona, Griffith receives scholarship money and prizes totaling approximately $175,000; including a four year tuition wavier to Grand Canyon University and two-year tuition waver to any of the Maricopa Community Colleges. Griffith was also awarded the State Community Service Award from the Miss America Organization.

The honor of first-runner up to Miss Arizona went to Miss Yuma County, Danielle Lee. Second runner-up honors went to Miss Sierra Vista, Brandy Milloy. Miss Southeast Arizona, Erin Nurss of Sierra Vista took third runner-up honors. Miss Ocotillo, Tricia Joy Hale, of Mesa took honors as fourth runner-up. Hale was also honored with the Quality of Life Award; a special scholarship award that honors community involvement.

I saw Hillary (Miss Arizona 2006) with Robert Schuller on “The Hour of Power” show May 6, 2007 on WYTV 33, Youngstown, OH. Hillary is a beautiful and bright person. If Hillary is not available, I would like to meet and get to know a girl like her someday.
