Queen Pomona XLIII - Olivia Clare Travis
Olivia Clare Travis was crowned the 43rd Queen Pomona at the Coronation ceremony on October 14, 2022 at Airborne Church. She will reign over the festival until a new queen is crowned at the 44th festival in October of 2023. Olivia is the daughter of Michelle and Daniel Travis of Gerrardstown, she is the granddaughter of Joan Bragg and Bill Mumaw of Martinsburg, John Bragg of Pipestem, WV, and Brenda and Burl Travis of Salem, WV. She is also the great granddaughter of Edwina Travis of West Union, WV.
Olivia is a senior at Martinsburg High School where she is involved in many clubs, activities, and organizations, all while maintaining a 4.5 GPA. She is a four-year member of Velocity Dance Team, President of National Honor Society, Secretary of Senior Class Student Council, a member of Science National Honor Society, and a member of Interact Club.
Olivia has been dancing with Tari Jo’s Dance Studio since she was three years old. Her greatest accomplishment involving dance would have to be displaying her talent on the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen stage in Summer 2021 when she represented our state as Miss West Virginia’s Outstanding Teen. With plans and aspirations to attend West Virginia University in the fall of 2023, Olivia hopes to become a Forensic Psychiatrist and work for the FBI’S Behavioral Analysis Unit.
Since the age of six, Olivia has been volunteering with a number of local, national, and international organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House, The CROWN Cares, BRAVE, Comfort Cases, Berkeley County Backpack Program, the Rescue Mission, and Kids Power Pacs. She has recently enacted her own nonproﬁ t named The Prom Connection, which fully dressed 82 students in the Eastern Panhandle for no charge for Prom 2022.
Olivia loves to share her passion for volunteering with her peers, and many times they have joined her to make a difference in their communities. Olivia is very excited and honored to be part of the festival legacy, as her mother, Michelle Bragg Travis, was Queen Pomona the 12th.
