Inscription.  
"I'm sure being Miss America has broadened my experience, but I have actually enjoyed being a former Miss America more than the year I reigned. Being on display was not my 'thing.' The most positive outcome has been my long association with a group of eight former Miss Americas."

Angela Saulino Osborne, Miss America: The Dream Lives On, Taylor Publishing Company, Dallas, 1995, p. 74
 
Erected by Miss America Organization.
