Kara McCullough is a 25-year-old scientist who has now brought the District it's second Miss USA Pageant win in a row! She beat out the competition Chhavi Verg (Miss New Jersey) and Meredith Gould (Miss Minnesota) to earn the crown!
McCullough was born in Italy and raised in the DMV (Virginia Beach to be exact). She then went on to obtain a degree at South Carolina State University where she studied nuclear chemistry. Before winning the pageant she worked for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. McCullough, who had just entered the competition for fun, is full of joy and shock in accomplishing such an incredible feat! (source: Washington Post)
