 Alaskan Girl Who Grew Up In Anchorage Wins Miss America Crown 


A 20-year old girl who went to Service High and was brought up in Anchorage has won the Miss America Pageant, on behalf of Alaska. 

She's the first Alaskan and the first Korean-American to take the crown. 

Emma Broyles' mother is the daughter of Korean immigrants, and is a special education teacher at Service High. 

The contestants gave speeches on their "social impact initiatives." Emma has been involved with Alaska's robust Special Olympics Alaska program her whole life. Her brother has Down syndrome and competes in Special Olympics athletic events. 

Emma is the second Alaskan young woman to make a splash on the national scene this year. In July, Lydia Jacoby of Seward won the women's 100-meter in the Olympics in Tokyo, winning the first Olympic swimming medal for an Alaskan. She was only 17.
