NC Museum of History – Miss North Carolina

“I have seen it from a local level and a national level, how it not only changes the lives of the participants. You don’t have to win for it to change your life. They overcame obstacles simply to compete and by competing, gave themselves such levels of self-confidence, it really did change their lives.”

— David Clegg, President, Sisterhood of Miss North Carolina, an organization for the state’s former winners.
