Susie Proffitt, Miss Rutherford County, was crowned in Winston-Salem. She tap danced to “Baby Face” and won on her second attempt at the state crown. Her first official appearance was attending the Coronation Ball and in honor of the Bicentennial, she was transported down I-40 by a horse-drawn carriage escorted by Revolutionary War clad minutemen.
