Louisiana Tech senior Gracie Reichman was crowned Miss Louisiana this weekend and will represent the state in the upcoming Miss America contest.
Reichman, who earned her place to compete in Miss Louisiana by taking home the Miss Louisiana Watermelon Festival crown, was second runner-up to Miss Louisiana last year.
She was chosen as the preliminary talent winner after dancing to “Blue Suede Shoes.”
“This year was even more special because my big sister, Kassi Carey, choreographed this routine,” Reichman wrote on her Facebook page. “It was only through the support of my family, my wonderful directors and many hours spent at Lambright Aerobics room that I was able to perform.”
Reichman, who resides in Colfax, is a kinesiology major at Tech.
First runner-up in the contest was Makenzie Scroggs, second runner-up was Jourdan Waddell, third runner-up was Anna Claire Lemoine, and fourth runner-up was McKenzie Connelly.
