The reality of it all was still setting in Monday for a 2001 Milan High School graduate crowned Miss Kentucky during that state’s pageant Saturday.
Rachelle Phillips will now go on to represent Kentucky in January’s Miss America pageant. Phillips, now 24, has had the dream of being in the national pageant since age 12.
“I’m still very overwhelmed,” Phillips said in a telephone interview Monday night with The Jackson Sun. “It’s amazing to know that I will be walking on the Miss America stage.”
Her family moved to Princeton, Ky., from Milan about two years ago.
