Miss Texas will soon be back in Texoma for Texoma Marketing and Media Group’s Best of Texoma Gala.

Margana Wood, Miss Texas 2017, will be the master of ceremonies for this year's Best of Texoma Gala on June 2. The event will highlight and honor the best businesses and organizations in the region, as chosen by Texoma residents.


Wood is a recent graduate from the University of Texas at Austin where she earned a degree in corporate communications. At UT, she was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha Women’s Fraternity and danced for the Texas Pom Squad. This year she has partnered with "The Little Words Project," a national organization whose mission is to spread kindness. During her 12-month speaking tour as Miss Texas, she will make more than 300 appearances and speak before over 100,000 people about the Texas Cares for Children Program, Children’s Miracle Network and her personal platform "You Belong - Creating a Judgment-Free Generation."


For the Best of Texoma Gala, which is in its second year, finalists will be invited to a special dinner at Denison’s Hilton Garden Inn. The event will culminate with the reveal of who received the most votes in each category.

For this year’s Best of Texoma Awards, the contest featured a preliminary nomination phase where residents could nominate businesses of their choice in more than 200 subcategories within seven main categories. From there, a second voting phase was held with the top three winners in each category.

The results of the final round will be announced at the gala on June 2 where all the finalists will be honored.
