Miss Columbus 2014 Hayley Henderson visits the WTVM Studio

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Miss Columbus 2014 paid a visit to the WTVM Studio today, Oct. 31, for a live interview with Chandi Lowry and Chuck Leonard.

Hayley Henderson, who works as Marketing Director for Chick-Fil-A on Macon Rd., was recently crowned Miss Columbus this past Saturday, Oct. 26.

"Columbus is home," says Henderson. "This is the city that has made me the woman I am today, and the ability to be able to serve in this city, to be an ambassador for Columbus, I'm just so looking forward to this year."

Henderson's platform is the March of Dimes, a cause for premature babies to ensure that eventually all babies will be born healthy. "My niece was born premature, and being able to see her so small at age seven, I knew that families shouldn't have to go through that," she says.

Henderson will compete in the 2014 Miss Georgia pageant, representing the very city that hosts the pageant annually. She says, "I don't think it's really an advantage. I thinks it's more of a great opportunities to welcome all the girls to my hometown, to let them know what our city is all about."    

The 2014 Miss Georgia competition will be Henderson's third time participating in the pageant. She was previously Miss Columbus State University and Miss Troup County.

"Now having the opportunity to go back my final year as Miss Columbus," Henderson says, "It's going to be a great year."
