University of North Texas Shilah Phillips Set The Tone at 2010 Collin Cabaret

Shilah Phillips set the tone and hit all the high notes her rendition of “Heard it Through the Grapevine” to kickoff the 2010 Collin Cabaret - A Silver Tribute to Excellence in Education - a signature event that raises non-endowed funds to benefit students with scholarships. On stage is where Shilah belongs, with a history of outstanding vocals and pageant wins behind here - she looks and sounds sensationally stunning.

Shilah is alumnus of Collin College and currently on the road to completing her degree in Jazz from the University of North Texas. She began her studies at the prestigious Howard University in Washington, D.C. where she received educational honors in addition to the most Outstanding Vocalist Award.
Beyond the vocal talents Shilah's beauty and grace has carried her on to other outstanding accomplishments where she competed in the Miss America pageant system and setting records along the way; In 2006 Shilah Phillips became the first black woman to reign as Miss Texas in the organization's 85 year history, one of few women to climb the ranks to the Miss America pageant in one try, winning to reign as Miss Frisco 2006, and 1st runner up to Miss America.

During the past 25 years, Collin College has grown to serve more than 46,000 credit and continuing education students – many of whom rely heavily on scholarships and financial aid assistance to fund their higher education dreams, adding to the importance of Collin Cabaret, which is in its third year.

The 2009 Collin Cabaret raised over $300,000 to support student scholarships. These funds were used to award approximately 300 scholarships for the 2009 academic year.

Troy Richard Salon is a long time supporter of Shilah Phillips and we look forward to standing with Shilah on her red carpet.
