ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Miss Georgia, Carly Mathis, made a stop in Dougherty County to encourage service members to continue helping others.    

Miss Mathis, who was crowned Miss Georgia in June, spoke to the Dougherty County Kiwanis Club Monday.    

Mathis, who's from Leesburg, spoke about her journey in the pageant industry and making it into the top 10 of the Miss America Pageant. 

But more importantly she stressed the importance of staying healthy and talked about her platform, heart health.    

"I've teamed up with Sibley in Atlanta, and we're working on some things for Heart Month, which is next month," Mathis said.  "And to help children who are born with health defects to make their day a little brighter, and to make a difference in their lives as well.  Because it's more than just a crown to me, it's about making a difference, and that's what the Miss America organization is about."

Mathis is currently studying for the LSAT and plans to attend law school.  She will crown the next Miss Georgia in June.
