Albany- Miss Albany State University beat out more than 30 other women to take home a national crown.

Over the weekend in Atlanta, 21-year old Kendria Bailey was crowned Miss National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame 2005. She competed against pageant winners from other historically black colleges and universities.

The senior, opera singer, hopes to have a career in the music industry after finishing graduate school. "I'm just overwhelmed because I didn't expect it. I'm excited, very excited and very happy that I could bring honor to my university," said Bailey.

Bailey also won a $2,500 scholarship and a trip to the Virgin Islands, along with the title and crown.
