    In 2014 as the reigning Mrs. Texas, Beth Isbell competed in the Mrs. United States pageant and walked away with the crown!  At the time, she was only twenty-four years old, yet she continues to represent married women everywhere with grace and style.  In this episode of "The Pageant Hour", I will get to know more about this Texas beauty.


    Beth Isbell graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science with a minor in Agricultural Business. She quickly developed a passion for learning and leading in an educational environment, so upon graduation she attended Texas A&M University where she completed a Master of Science degree in Leadership, Education and Communications.


    She began working for the Texas A&M University system as a youth development agent in which she provided educational programming relating to health, bullying, character education, and leadership to youth in her assigned county. Two years later, she began working for East Central University as a graduate advisor and program coordinator for distance education and still volunteers her time heavily with programs that focus on youth mentoring.
