Miss America’s Outstanding Teen returns home, begins preparing for college
Olivia McMillan, a 17-year-old Northside High School senior who won the Warner Robins and Georgia pageants to advance to the national competition, won the title last month in Orlando.
That means $25,000 in scholarship money. McMillan tells 41NBC her dream school is the University of Southern California, but before she makes any college decisions, she has plenty of work to do.
“I’ll actually be going to Philadelphia over the Thanksgiving break and being in the parade there,” she says. “I’ll soon be going to Miss America’s homecoming party–this is mine, but she has one in New York City that we’ll be going to–just a lot of different traveling.”
Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev, has taken a lot of heat after reports said she was involved in sorority hazing while in college. Kazantsev has also been criticized for that red solo cup performance that won her the talent competition.
McMillan says the former Miss New York winner has handled it all “like a rock star.”
