Mt. Rubidoux Church Member
Wins Miss Oakwood Title

Bria Imani Gamble, a member of Mt. Rubidoux SDA church in Riverside, Calif., and senior Biology major at Oakwood University just won the title of Miss Oakwood for the next school year. Gamble credits her success at school to her involvement in church activities like the Pathfinder Teen Leadership Training, sports, orchestra, a close-knit family. In high school, Gamble was the first African-American president of her senior class and she learned, first-hand, the impact representation of Black excellence can have on the members of a community. She believes anyone can accomplish their goals with God on their side.

 

 

 

Bria Gamble, a native of Southern California, was recently crowned as Miss Oakwood.
