A Gardner-Webb student and longtime member of the local community will contend for a state title later this month that could ultimately give her a chance to compete in the 96th Miss America pageant this fall. Rachel Leigh Möwer, a rising sophomore nursing major at GWU, competed in a Miss America preliminary pageant held in Shelby, N.C., last fall. When she was crowned Miss Shelby, she earned the opportunity to compete in the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant, scheduled for June 22-25 in Raleigh.
