“I’m not 5’ 10” with long legs and acting as a model — that’s not what Miss Virginia or Miss America does,” Willis said. “Talent is 35 [percent of your score], interview is 25 — so really I’m more of a PR person, someone who can be in a business meeting with intellectuals … and go get dirty playing with kids and teaching them about good decision-making.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Thanks Rosemary for being a wonderful Miss Virginia and leaving your legacy on so many inside and outside the state!
