Miss Georgia's mom reminisces on daughter's journey

DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) -

A Decatur County family is still celebrating a Miss Georgia win. 21-year-old Maggie Bridges of Brinson was crowned Saturday night in Columbus.

She's a rising senior at Georgia Tech and was Miss Capital City. Her mother says Maggie started in pageants when she was just 9-years-old.

"She was Little Miss Pine Seedling, Decatur County's Little Miss Pine Seedling, she entered a forestry pageant and that's how she got her start," recalled the mother of Miss Geogia, Cathy Bridges.

Cathy Bridges says the last couple of days have been a whirlwind. She says Maggie is ready to get to work representing the state, serving as a role model, and encouraging volunteerism.
