23-year-old blonde from Brooklyn, N.Y., won the Miss America crown Saturday night after deftly dealing with a question about armed guards in schools and raising the issue of child sexual abuse in her contestant platform.
During the opening number at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, all the queens gave brief remarks about their states, and Miss Hagan referenced last year's superstorm, saying, "Sandy may have been swept away our shores but never our spirit."
I love her optimism! So congratulations to the new 2013 Miss America Mallory Hytes Hagan.
