Local Richwoods High School Student Running For 2017 Miss Illinois Teen USA

Kerra WilliamsMiss Kerra Williams, daughter of Lord Mic (Peoria 92.3), is a senior at Richwoods High School and is running for Miss Illinois Teen USA. The Pageant is September 2 – 5, 2016 at Braden Auditorium on Illinois State University’s campus in Normal, Illinois. “I have never competed or even thought about competing in a beauty pageant, especially in such a prestigious competition as the Miss Illinois Teen USA Pageant”, said Miss Williams. “But I stepped out of my comfort zone and applied and luckily enough, I was accepted to compete!”

This state Pageant hopes to give young women an opportunity to develop life skills and a chance to win various prizes. Every young woman participating in this Pageant will have an opportunity for a scholarship to Lindenwood University. Miss Williams plans on majoring in Criminal Justice and is excited about the chance to represent Peoria in the State Pageant.

I believe I can achieve this and appreciate the support and help I am receiving throughout this journey.”
