Jeanie Cross was a 1962 Albany High School Graduate.  She won the 1962 Miss Albany Contest, and advanced to the Miss Georgia Pageant. Her talent in the pageant was a jazz dance, but she was also an accomplished pianist.

In September, she went on to participate in the Miss America contest and finished in the top ten! 

Her Class of 1962 still exults!

Note:  If anyone has a better photo ... please email in jpeg format to albanyhightimes@aol.com.  Also please let us know if you know where she took dance and with whom she studied piano!
