Official Preliminary to Miss Texas and Miss America Scholarship Competitions

Miss San Antonio America 2004, Elysia Petru (Held through 2005)
Local Pageant Information:

Glynda Coyle, Executive Director

Miss San Antonio Summary:

Elysia Petru retained her 2004 title for 2005 because of the decision to crown future titles one year in advance to have ample time to prepare for the state pageant.  There was no competition for the 2005 Miss San Antonio title.  The pageant held in 2005 crowned Miss San Antonio for 2006.

Elysia Petru only competed at Miss Texas in 2004.  There was not a Miss San Antonio titleholder competing at Miss Texas in 2005.

This new pageant schedule resulted in two active Miss San Antonio titleholders from April through July of each year.  The current year titleholder would end their reign after the state pageant was held in July.

This titleholder overlap continued until 2012 when it was decided to postpone crowning the next titleholder until the current titleholder's reign was complete after the state pageant.
