Miss NC Crown Goes To Miss Raleigh

A woman who relearned dance after having surgery for a curved spine has been named Miss North Carolina.

WRAL-TV and The Fayetteville Observer reported that Miss Raleigh, Elizabeth Southard, was crowned Saturday night during a ceremony in Raleigh. Southard suffered from scoliosis, which causes abnormal curvature of the spine.

She says she had surgery two years ago. After 21 years of dance training, she had to relearn dancing after the surgery.

On Saturday, she was in a three-way tie for first place in the talent competition with her ballet en pointe performance of "Fascinating Rhythm."

Southard won a $12,000 scholarship and will compete for the Miss America title in January in Las Vegas.
