Dorsey second runner up in Homecoming Queen Pageant

Kelly Dorsey captured third place in the Ohio State Homecoming Queen Pageant held in Dayton April 12-13.

Dorsey, 18, who was invited to compete as a finalist in the annual competition after being crowned Clermont Northeastern High School Homecoming Queen last fall, was in the running to represent Ohio and advance to the America’s Homecoming Queen contest to be held this August.

Even though she did not win, she said that she was flattered and honored to be in the running against the the top 10 percent of all state homecoming queens.

“The pageant (which is not a beauty pageant, Dorsey stresses) was a wonderful learning experience that has inspired me to compete in other pageants in the future,” a proud Dorsey said.
