Former Hart High graduate Brittany Klocko has been selected as Miss Texas United States, and is set to compete for the title of Miss United States in October.
Klocko, a former Santa Clarita resident and graduate of Hart High School, has been named Miss Texas United States for 2020.
Before relocating to Texas, Klocko had competed in the Miss California United States pageant in March of 2019 as Miss Santa Clarita Valley, where she won the Sunless Beauty Tan award.
She holds a B.A. degree in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a B.S.N. degree in nursing from Mount Saint Mary’s University. In addition to being a Registered Nurse, Klocko is also a Certified Emergency Nurse, as well as one of only 5,200 Trauma Certified Registered Nurses in the country.
It is this background that has inspired Klocko’s platform, which is to “provide medical services and medical education to underserved communities at the local, national and international level.”
“I am truly blessed to have been selected as Miss Texas United States 2020,” Klocko said in a statement Tuesday. “I look forward to the upcoming year and the additional opportunities the title will present me to promote my platform and make a positive impact in improving the health of individuals in underserved communities.”
Klocko used her Registered Nurse skills to volunteer at the Watermark Urgent Care clinic in Dallas, which provides “free health care services to the underserved residents of the area.”
She has also volunteered as part of the on-site medical staff at Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times.
“The camp provides cost-free, medically supervised residential camp experience to childhood cancer patients and survivors,” reads a statement issued Tuesday. “The camp provides a safe place for every child to just be free to just be a kid.”
Additionally, Klocko has served the international community, having spent several weeks working with the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children to provide health care services and health education in rural Bududa, Uganda.
She is now set to compete for the title of Miss United States 2020 in Las Vegas during National Pageant week in October. During that time, she is set to compete in four events: Private Interview, Swimsuit, Evening Gown and an On-stage Question.
“After the first three of those events take place, all delegate scores in the Miss Division will be tallied and the Top 15 delegates will once again participate in Swimsuit and Evening Gown competition with the Top 5 delegates participating in an On-Stage Question leading up to the selection of Miss United States 2020,” Tuesday’s statement reads.
National Pageant week is scheduled to run from Oct. 11-15.
