As seen in the sidebar, all four of the women who had previously competed in Ohio were (at least) semifinalist in the other states they competed in this year! Congrats to all of them!
Sophia Davis is a former Miss Mansfield, Miss Miami Valley and... why am I thinking she was the last Miss Pickerington?? She is an Ohio native who now works in Washington D.C., where she placed 4th Runner-up to Miss D.C. in her second attempt there.
Elyse Healey held several local titles in Ohio and placed in the Top 5. She moved to Pennsylvania for graduate studies and was a Top 11 semifinalist in her first try at their state crown.
April O'Brien is from Ohio but attends college in West Virginia. She has been a determined local competitor in both states for a few years, finally winning a title in West Virginia and going straight to the Top 8 there!
Finally, Jackie Jerlecki is a BGSU student who was a perpetual 1st Runner-up in Ohio locals a couple years ago. Back in her home state of Indiana she made the Top 10 in her second attempt at the state pageant.
