Jenna Eltzroth, a sophomore from Liberty Center, Indiana, was crowned as the 39th Miss Indiana State University on Sunday afternoon at University Hall Auditorium. Eltzroth succeeds Miss ISU Olivia Dillion.

"I love Indiana State," Eltzroth said. " I have been fortunate to be involved in organizations that allow me to grow as a student leader. Being Miss Indiana State University will allow me to be an ambassador that can make an impact on the campus and in the community."

Eltzroth is majoring in Applied Medicine with a concentration in Pre-Physician Assistant. She is pursuing a minor in Massage Therapy and is a student in ISU's Honors College. She is active in Student Government Association, Pre-Physician Assistant Association, Timmy Global Health, and Christian Student Fellowship.

Eltzroth is passionate about diabetic health awareness and has chosen to support the Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana as a social impact initiative.

The Miss ISU program has been in existence since 1958. This year, the program awarded $3,750 in scholarships to the candidates. It is preliminary for the Miss Indiana Scholarship Program and the Miss America Scholarship Program. Eltzroth will represent ISU at Miss Indiana in June 2022.

"The role of Miss ISU is to be an ambassador and representative for the university in a variety of ways," said Freda Luers, director of campus life and director of the pageant. "Miss ISU is active in philanthropic and service events as well as community engagement activities."

Scholarship providers include Indiana State University Foundation; ISU Barnes & Noble Bookstore; Indiana State University Federal Credit Union; Indiana State University Panhellenic Association, and the Miss ISU Educational Fund.
