LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

A hometown heroine was honored tonight in Lee County. County Commissioners passed a proclamation recognizing the new Miss Georgia, Carly Mathis! 

The recent University of Georgia graduate won the crown last month and will compete in the Miss America Pageant in September.

The proclamation praised Mathis's work with the American Heart Association and Children's Miracle Network and as a mentor for girls.

Commissioners say she brings great pride and honor to Lee County.
