NOPD Sergeant Reigns As Goddess Nyx VI This Mardi Gras

NEW ORLEANS – Working as the administrative supervisor for the NOPD’s First District, Sgt. Zenia Smith-Williams wears many hats in her day-to-day duties.

         Now, Smith-Williams can add another piece of head wear to her collection – a crown – as she reigns over the all-female Mystic Krewe of Nyx for Mardi Gras 2017 as Goddess Nyx VI.

         With Nyx only forming in 2011, Smith-Williams is the sixth monarch in the krewe’s young history. However, Nyx has grown rapidly to now standing as the largest all-female krewe in New Orleans and the second-largest krewe citywide.

         “It’s my responsibility as the reigning goddess to represent the krewe of 2,951 ladies,” Smith-Williams said of Nyx. “It’s a big honor.”
