Cheryl Brown Davis, PhD., of Heathsville on June 30 was crowned Ms. Virginia Senior America 2017.

She joined a distinguished group of competing Virginia women sharing their talent and lifetime stories of grace and accomplishment at the Virginia Pageant in Falls Church, reported state director Annmarie Pittman.

Barbara Barron of McLean was first runner up and Victoria Pereira of Alexandria was second runner up.

The title has now been won for two consecutive years by Northern Neck residents, said Pittman. Last year’s title holder was Davis’ friend, Rebecca Tebbs Nunn of Kilmarnock.

Davis, 68, saw this as a wonderful opportunity, on this her 50th high school reunion year, to expand her purposeful life into new venues, said Pittman. She will represent Virginia this fall at the National Ms. Senior America Pageant in Atlantic City, N.J.

A native Virginian, Davis is a distinguished retired music teacher and is well known throughout the region for her love of community and music. She is deeply involved in many aspects of the Northern Neck music community and is active in many volunteer activities.

Davis attended George Wythe High School, Richmond; University of Virginia, Charlottesville; James Madison University, Harrisonburg; and University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
