United grad finishes as semifinalist in Miss Ohio USA

Salem resident Angela Judy finished among the semifinalists in the 2017 Miss Ohio USA held Nov. 10-11 in Springfield.

Judy, a 2015 United Local High School graduate, was also a semifinalist in 2015.

She is currently a junior at Walsh College in Canton.

“I didn’t walk away with the crown but I did walk away with great memories,” Judy said. “I was honored to make it as a semifinalist, placing in the top 15. I am so happy for my friend Deneen Penn who is now your new Miss Ohio USA 2018. She is truly a beautiful soul and will represent Ohio beautifully.

“I am beyond blessed for my support system and I look forward to next year. Never give up on your dreams. Obstacles are placed in our paths to challenge us. It is our choice to determine if these obstacles stop us or make us better than we were before we started. Nothing worth having comes easy. Never give up on something you really want.”

She is the daughter of Toni and Scott Judy. At United Local she was involved in a number of organizations and was a National Honor Society member and scholarships recipient. Judy was also a standout track hurdler.
