“My experiences have helped me grow as person,” said Cromer. “I have met so many wonderful people of all ages. There has been a great deal of hard work , but it has definitely been worth it. I am blessed to have been provided this opportunity, and I appreciate so much the support I have received. Having participated in the system as a Palmetto Princess in 2006, I had knowledge of the Miss South Carolina and the Miss America Organizations' committment to service. I have learned even more as a contestant, and made many wonderful friends. My goal is to represent Newberry College and the area communities well in the Miss South Carolina pageant. There are so many wonderful young ladies competing, and I am honored to one of them.”
