Miss American Organization To Be Led By Women
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The Miss America Organization is putting women in its three top leadership positions following an email scandal involving former male leaders of the scholarship group.
The organization tells The Associated Press it is appointing Regina Hopper as president and CEO of the Miss America Organization, and Marjorie Vincent-Tripp as chairwoman of the board of the Miss America Foundation.
Coupled with Gretchen Carlson leading the Miss America Organization’s board of trustees, the group is moving on from the email scandal with women firmly in charge.
Hopper, a former Miss Arkansas and TV journalist, replaces Sam Haskell, whose emails about the intellect, appearance and sex lives of former Miss Americas led to his departure and a revamping of the group’s top leadership in December.
