Meet Virginia

Miss Mountain Empire takes the Miss Virginia crown!

There is no way in the world I would miss seeing my dear friend, Miss Virginia 2006, Adrianna Sgarlata, give up her crown. Of course I wanted to see the Miss Virginia competition, too, but being in the audience when Adrianna sings is an amazing experience in itself! Her rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic gives you chills!!

The pageant was held at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center last night and aired live on ABC affiliates in Virginia and in the District.

The Top Ten held some surprises, but the state of Virginia can be very proud of the results – Hanna Kiefer took away the crown last night. Her talent was a phenomenal ballet of pointe. Her evening gown was stunningly eleggant, and her ability to express herself on stage was quite impressive.

Just a few weeks remain until I have to give up my crown, too, and the District will have a new Miss America representative. Who will it be??
