One of Gardner-Webb senior Chelsea Gregory’s dreams came true this spring, when she won the Miss South Carolina International crown. Having competed in pageants on and off since age 6, the Pittsburgh, Pa. native admits her passion for the stage as part of the allure for pageants: “I’ve been dancing and cheerleading since I was little, so being on stage is always a thrill.” But what made the victory particularly special—and what has characterized her tenure as Miss South Carolina International—is her platform: a transformative message of hope born out of her own childhood struggle.
