Former Miss America coming to Junaluska

This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant, “Yearrrrrrrrrrrs ago,” quoting Jeanne, uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing … and thinking about her message.

Proceeds from the event will benefit United Way of Haywood County’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Program and The Haywood Volunteer Center.
