Ashleigh Robinson, better known as Miss Oklahoma 2021, joined staff members of the Oklahoma Conference Ministry Center for their annual holiday luncheon on Dec. 2.

Robinson shared how growing up in the Oklahoma Conference shaped her. Project Transformation, OK Camps, and local churches all had an impact on how she lives out her faith.

In addition to performing musical selections such as “God Help the Outcasts,” she spoke about her Social Impact Initiative, a platform that promotes inclusion of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities in order to create opportunities for education, employment and social engagement.

Robinson is an English language arts teacher at F. D. Moon Middle School in Oklahoma City, where she had volunteered for a year before being hired. She received a rookie of the month award in her first year.

Robinson will compete in the Miss America Pageant Dec. 12-16. The pageant is celebrating 100 years this year. The final competition will be livestreamed on Peacock at 7 p.m. CST.
