Pike County Teen Wins Miss KY Teen USA

A Pike County native has won big in a state-wide competition. Pikeville High School Junior Emma Johns won Miss Kentucky Teen USA 2019. She says “I kept a positive mindset and I prayed a lot,” recalled Johns. “Everyone asked me if I am religious because before I went on, every single time I would pray ‘Dear Lord, please don’t let me fall. Please let me do good. Just keep with me through this whole thing.’ I prayed like 30 times each night,” added Johns. She says the pageant process helped her self-confidence and she recommends the experience to any young girl like her.
