UTA alum Debbie Carroll-Boyce of Frisco was named the 2011 Ms. Senior America at the annual Ms. Senior America Pageant held in Atlantic City, N.J. Oct. 2-7.

The Frisco resident sang and danced to “Stuff Like That There” from the Bette Midler movie, “For the Boys.” An educator for 31 years, Carroll-Boyce served as an elementary school principal for 17 years and as a middle and high school teacher and counselor for 14 years. She earned a Bachelors’ Degree in Communication from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Master’s Degree in Education/Counseling and Mid Management Administration from Texas Women’s University. The active volunteer spends time tutoring students, and was named the “Most Positive Principal” by the Power of Positive Student Organization. 

 “Just because a person reaches a certain age, does not mean you should quit pushing and challenging yourself every single day. I am flattered beyond belief and will serve with great pride to help raise awareness for all I believe in," Carroll-Boyce, said.

Carroll-Boyce will use her title to promote a lifestyle of healthy living for seniors, raise awareness for mental and physical well-being and raise funds for research for Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
