Could the Miss Ohio Crown go to yet Another Kent State Student?

Two Kent State University students are competing for the coveted title of Miss Ohio 2016.

Veronica Garey, a junior in Kent State’s College of Communication and Information, and Erin Simonek, a freshman in Kent State’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, are among 20 contestants in this year’s pageant.  

The competition kicks off Thursday, June 16, in the Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield, Ohio. It ends Saturday, June 18, with the crowning of Miss Ohio.

Sarah Hider, the reigning Miss Ohio and graduate student in Kent State’s College of Arts and Sciences, will pass her crown onto this year’s winner.

Prior to Hider’s crowning, Heather Wells, a Kent State broadcast journalism graduate, won the competition in 2013.  

The winner of Miss Ohio 2016 will go on to compete in the Miss America Scholarship Program in Atlantic City in the fall.
