Calico Rock couldn’t be more proud of their hometown girl Savannah Skidmore! Thursday was an exciting night as everyone tuned in to their TV to watch the Miss USA Pageant.
Skidmore was selected into the top 15 after preliminary events. The judges then eliminated five contestants after the swimsuit competition and the remaining 10 continued in the evening wear segment of the contest. As the contestant pool dwindled down everyone was on the edge of their seats, hoping and pray for Savannah. After five more contestants were eliminated, it came down to the top five in the question portion of the show in which contestants answered queries formulated by their peers. Unfortunately, Skidmore and one other contestant were eliminated during that round.
This is the first time a Miss Arkansas USA has made it into the Top 5 since 1982 when Terri Utley won Miss USA.
Miss North Carolina Chelsie Kryst wound up winning the title of Miss USA.
Even though Skidmore didn’t take the crown Thursday night she is still a shining star in the eyes of this community and we can not wait to see what great things she goes on to do next!
