The next time Betty Cantrell steps onto Mercer’s campus, she’ll be wearing a new crown.
The Warner Robin’s native beat out 51 contestants on the nationally televised pageant from Atlantic City. Cantrell is the second “Miss Georgia” to garner the title.
The 21-year-old wowed the judges during the talent preliminary with an opera performance.
Cantrell is a student at Mercer University. But she put a hold on her studies while she prepared for the Miss America Pageant.
