Born in 1980, in Oregon, Katie Harman won the 2002 Miss America
pageant. She went to the Centennial High School
and graduated with "highest honors".
The pageant this year was very challenging for the girls, as they had to answer two questions in addition to the swimsuit contest etc.
Harman is a speech communications major at Portland State University but Katie says she'll major in Bioethics, and use her new title to combat breast cancer in the US. Besides looking a-ok in the different contests, she chose to sing an arie from one of the Puccini operas, 'O mio babbino caro' in the talent contest.
I made a little picture collection of Katie as she wins the pageant, view it here (Some of the pictures are quite funny!):
