Duchess of Texas Gemini XXXIV,

Shawn Gibson

Duchess of Texas XXXIV, Shawn Gibson, is a native of Louisiana who was born and raised on Caddo Lake in Oil City.  She graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a BA in Fashion Merchandising and an Associate in Business.

 

Shawn began her career in Texas working in merchandising and modeling.  Later, she moved west to Wyoming.  While there, Shawn discovered her love for championing children who did not have a voice in the community.  She volunteered for multiple organizations including 4H where she served as a leader specializing in show steers and as a member of the Leader’s Council Board.  She also co-chaired the Special Olympics, served on the STEM Advisory Board, and was PTA President.  Her proudest moment was being elected to the School Board of Trustees where she worked tirelessly for the benefit of children and education.  She spends most of her time managing the renovations of her parents’ estate, quality time at the gun range, and is self-employed as a commissioned decorative painter.  She is a proud mom of two beautiful, grown daughters, and one spoiled fur baby named JoJo.

 

In 2018, Shawn joined the Krewe of Gemini and is eager to represent the Krewe as Duchess of Texas XXXIV.  She looks forward to meeting many new friends and attending events throughout the year.  Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!
