Air Force 2nd Lt. Madison Marsh graduated from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs last year. She was crowned Miss America in January.

Just a few months after she graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and while working on a graduate degree at Harvard, 2nd Lt. Madison Marsh took on a new challenge. Marsh represented Colorado in the Miss America competition earlier this year and took the title. She’s using her new platform to promote awareness of pancreatic cancer, which killed her mother when Madison was 17.
