By

Kelsey Miller, a 2010 graduate of Ursuline Academy and the current Miss Delaware USA, will represent Delaware in the 2014 Miss USA Competition, which will be held June 8 at the Baton Rouge River Center in Louisiana.

Miller, 23, attended Christ the Teacher School before Ursuline. She was a standout basketball player, earning second-team all-state honors in 2010, her senior season. A pair of severe knee injuries led her to pageants, and she was named Miss Teen Delaware in 2009. She won the Miss Delaware USA pageant last December and has balanced her charitable endeavors with her work at the University of Delaware, where she is a senior.

Miller, a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Wilmington, will leave for Baton Rouge at the end of the month to join the other contestants for two weeks of activities leading up to the Miss USA Competition. The pageant will be broadcast on NBC.
