When Miss Kentucky USA 2008 takes the Miss USA pageant stage in Las Vegas on April 11, it will mark just her second time competing in a pageant.
Alysha Harris, formerly of Campbellsburg and Carrollton, won the Miss Kentucky USA pageant in Somerset on Jan. 6. In just her first pageant, Harris brought home the crown.
It was Harris' sister who prompted the 20-year-old to take a shot at the crown. When her sister said she thought it would be cool to have Miss Kentucky for a sister, Harris was sold.
"I said, 'okay, okay, I'll do it,' " she said.
