Mason has been competing in pageants in Tennessee for the past four years. Last year she was second runner-up in the Miss Knoxville pageant. Mason, a first grade school teacher, will now be on the way to the Miss America pageant. Mason joins the lineup of other current black beauty queens including Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst who is a civil litigation lawyer, Miss Teen USA Kaliegh Garris and Miss America Nia Franklin. Mason gave words of encouragement to those who may feel they can’t attain their dreams. “I’m here to tell you that it does not matter what your skin color is. It does not matter what your religion is. You can do anything that you want.” Now that she has the title of Miss Tennessee,  she will be taking a year of leave from her job. Mason will also receive a $15,000 scholarship. SOURCE: MADAMENOIRE.COM PHOTO CREDIT: WTVD]]>
