At age 3, she began dancing at the Central Oklahoma Dance Center in Ada. By the age of 10, she had been accepted into OU’s Ballet Youth Program, the Austin Ballet and the Houston Ballet. Through these experiences she fell in love with dance and has remained committed to mastering her craft. Now at age 21, Treat has been teaching and doing competition choreography for three years.
Two years ago Taylor created an event titled “Bowling with the Queens,” an event geared toward building positive relationships, raising money and creating awareness for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). The event has brought in more than $4,000 the past two years for CMN and served more than 100 children from the Boys and Girls Club of America with a day of bowling, snacks, prizes, a visit from “Sooner,” the OU Mascot, and local title holders or “Queens” from the Miss Oklahoma organization.
As Miss Oklahoma 2009, Treat looks forward to a full year of promoting her platform, Engaging Students through Service-Learning. She has high hopes that one day Oklahoma will require service-learning in each school, giving children better personal skills, helping them build contacts and preparing them for a brighter future. She also is very excited to work with Children’s Miracle Network and hopes to continue raising funds and awareness for this great philanthropy.
Treat is the daughter of John and Debra Treat of Ada. She has three brothers Jerrad, Preston, and wife Allicyn; and Connor. She also is the proud aunt of two nephews Zackary, 5, and Will, 3.
