PAGEANTS IN KENTUCKY
Did you know? The first – and only – Miss Kentucky to win the Miss America crown was unusual for several reasons…Heather French, Miss America 2000, was (1) a fashion illustration major (2) with very short hair, who was (3) the daughter of a disabled Vietnam veteran. Despite (or perhaps because of) being very unique and individualistic, Heather was named Miss Kentucky and Kentucky’s first ever Miss America 2000.
