A new Miss Mississippi has been crowned and Sunday she held her first press conference.
The 24 year old Oxford native posed for pictures and answered questions about her memorable night. Kimberly Morgan says the first people she called after being crowned were her grandparents.
She is excited to begin preparations for the Miss America pageant scheduled for January in Las Vegas.
"This is is a great experience for me," said Morgan. "I am looking forward to this year. And I just need everyones prayers and support and encouragement for me to roll towards Miss America. And i'm ready."
