The glimmer of her crown is eclipsed only by a gleam in her eye, and this 2012 Gardner-Webb alum is hoping the stars continue to align as she contends for a state title in June that could ultimately earn her a chance to compete in the Miss America pageant. Molly McKinney, a May 2012 graduate of GWU and the current marketing director at the LeGrand Center (Shelby, N.C.), recently competed in a Miss America preliminary pageant, held in Shelby, N.C. on Feb. 22. When she was crowned Miss Shelby, she earned the opportunity to compete in the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant, scheduled for June 21.
