Maya was 23 year old when she was crowned Miss Garden City 2015.
“I never believed something like this was possible for me. Being a pat of the Miss America Scholarship Organization truly shows me that absolutely anything is possible. Everything I learned from my Miss South Carolina experience, I still rely upon on a daily basis.”
Maya is now a 2nd year Law Student at the University of South Carolina School of Law.
At the age of 17, Shantavia Edmonds, was crowned Miss Garden City Teen 2015. The personal platform, 8-OD or Every Individual Gets Hope Through Organ Donation she began back then still remains an integral part of her life. I was inspired by my own families personal story with organ donation.
A junior biochemistry major and a part of the Honors College at Claflin University, she continues her advocacy as the reigning Miss Claflin University 2018-2019.
