Two Miss Arlington's headed to Miss America!
Last year, North Carolina rejoiced as two NC natives, Hannah Kiefer and Jessica Jacobs, headed to Miss America with their respective titles of Miss Virginia and Miss North Carolina. This year, Virginians get to watch two Virginia girls compete for the Miss America title!
Both ladies served as Miss Arlington, and Leigh-Taylor Smith, the new Miss New York, actually crowned Miss VA Tara Wheeler as Miss Arlington last December.
Leigh-Taylor Smith was third runner up two years in a row at the Miss Virginia pageant, also winning the community service award last year. She now lives in New York and went after the Miss New York title after winning Miss Brooklyn.
