Sign-off Statement: Ruby Tilghman, Miss Florida’s Outstanding Teen 2021: So grateful!
As I looked for a final picture to share, I knew this was the one. It represents the gratitude that I felt in that moment and the gratitude that I feel today as I prepare to pass on the title. This organization has, without a doubt, changed my life. I’m going to college debt free because of the scholarship and skills earned in this organization, and I’m leaving this year with relationships that will last a lifetime! 
Its hard to be sad about tonight because I’m too excited for another girl to be able to experience this opportunity. It’s rewarding, and fun, and meaningful, and all of the things it should be. And I have peace of mind in knowing that my year and my work is complete!
It is only by God’s grace that I was given this opportunity and I would be remiss if I failed to mention that it was Him who sustained me this year. The Lord placed a verse in my heart shortly before I won Miss Florida’s Outstanding Teen and that was Proverbs 3:6 which says, “Seek his ways in all you do and He will make straight your paths” and here I am at the end of a path that He has made straight, saying He is faithful to his promise. My prayer now is that I have in turn been faithful to fulfill His calling on this season of my life. 
Forever Grateful, I am Ruby Tilghman, Miss Florida’s Outstanding Teen 2021.
