PB woman named Ms. Arkansas United States


Sherry E. Livingston, a Pine Bluff resident, was recently named Ms. Arkansas United States 2014.

“I am humbled, blessed, thankful and overjoyed,” Livingston said. “Being selected as Ms. Arkansas is more than a dream for me. It truly affirms all the efforts I’ve put forth over the last few years, and I’m so humbled that the judges have recognized not only my achievements but also my vision.”

A longtime advocate for domestic violence prevention and women’s health, Livingston is dedicated to bringing much- needed attention to issues that impact women in her community. As the titleholder of Ms. Arkansas United States, Livingston has partnered with the CASA Women’s Shelter. In addition, she serves as the editor of Lady Magazine Online, a Christian magazine highlighting the accomplishments of African American women across the nation. Her life’s passion is to inspire her peers and young girls of the next generation, to promote positive self-image and to encourage others to realize their highest potential.

In July, Livingston will travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in the National competition with nearly 50 other titleholders from other states.
