Cynthiana is home to the new Miss Teen America.
Katie Himes competed for the national title and was crowned Sunday, the first Kentucky resident to win the pageant in over 20 years.
“I am very excited,” Himes said Monday afternoon on her way home from Windsor Locks, Conn., where the pageant was held last weekend. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet.”
Himes also received academic, talent, swimsuit and style awards.
“The last thing I remember is them calling my name,” Himes said about the moment she was crowned.
