Ohio County Native Wins Miss Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Western Kentucky native Ramsey Carpenter has been crowned Miss Kentucky and will compete in the Miss America Pageant in September.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1yceqNC ) reports that Carpenter's platform as Miss Kentucky is raising awareness of multiple sclerosis, which she was diagnosed with in 2010. The 23-year-old Hartford, Kentucky, native is a University of Kentucky graduate.

Carpenter competed against 32 hopefuls Saturday night at the Singletary Center for the Arts at UK.

She will head to the Miss America Pageant with her fiddle and renditions of bluegrass classics like "Orange Blossom Special," which she played in the talent competition.
