Miss America Is A Homeschooled Christian

01.19.11 | Bob Price

This year's Miss America is a 17 year-old home-schooled Christian. Teresa Scanlon says her faith helped her beat the competition. She says, "Pagent coaches always say you have to know who you are, you have to know what your purpose is, you have to be defined and know where you stand on these issues. That's already defined for me. All of that has been taken care of." Scanlan also says it was amazing to her how many other girls in the competition were also strong Christians. After her year as Miss America, Scanlan plans on attending Patrick Henry College - a Christian school in Virginia.
