Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Saratoga Springs, NY
— Miss America 1976 —
"She has tried marijuana (then told her parents and got 'properly scolded). She thinks abortion and premarital sex are matters of individual choice. And she has "nothing against homosexuals." Neither the confession about pot nor the opinions on morality are exactly avant-garde for a college sophomore these days… 'People think I'm very outspoken,' says Tawny.... 'There is only one drawback — sometimes people take what I say too seriously. I'm just a nineteen year old girl. What I say isn't gospel.'"
"Miss America, Tawny Godin," People Magazine, 3/22/1976, p 13.
