Evansville native, Tate Fritchley captured the title of Miss Indiana USA 2019 and in May represented the state at the Miss USA pageant in Reno-Tahoe.
During the two-week event, Fritchley got the chance to get know the other 50 ladies taking part in the elite competition.
Those state titleholders also got to know Fritchley and at the end of the two-weeks, selected Fritchley as Miss Congeniality for the Class of 2019.
The award is given, each year, to the young lady who lights up the room with kindness, generosity, and friendship.
Fritchley joined 44News Anchor Jessica Hartman on Tuesday morning to talk about the honor and her plans to continue her work with CASA during the remainder of her year as Miss Indiana USA.
