FUTURE NOW alum '18
Sydney Jhane' Jack is a native of Vacherie, LA, a small community cradled by the a mighty Mississippi River and veiled in sugarcane located in between the cities of New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Jack graduated from Dillard University with the distinction of Salutatorian in May 2018. A working stage actress, Sydney has performed in a number of productions including Dreamgirls, The Wiz, Ragtime, and most recently No Dream Deferred's Production of Tarell Alvin McCraney's In the Red and Brown Water at the Beaubourg Theatre in New Orleans. She was crowned Miss St. Tammany Heritage in November 2019 and was set to compete for the title of Miss Louisiana (Miss America System) in June of this year. Although the corona outbreak has left the competition postponed until next year, Sydney will continue to use her year of service to advocate prison reform, mental health awareness, and the importance of telling one's own story. She looks forward to taking the Miss Louisiana stage next summer.
