MANSFIELD, OH- Miss Montgomery County, Caroline Grace Williams was crowned Miss Ohio 2019 on Saturday night at the Renaissance Theatre to wrap up an exciting competition.

Caroline Grace Williams is from Cincinnati.  She attended Miami University for theatre and music.  Her talent is opera, which won her the talent portion of Thursday night's preliminary competition.  Williams performed a classical Italian opera piece about a girl begging her father to let her marry her true love.

William's social impact initiative is Caroline's Crisis Call Know the F.A.C.T.S. of calling 911.  During the competition Williams said, "Seconds count in every emergency. 77% of Americans own a smartphone, so update your medical alert information and know the facts of calling 911.  You could save a life, even your own."

After reaching the top 5, Williams stated that she would use her platform as Miss Ohio to empower women and teach them what the Miss America program really does to help women across the country.

"I want to educate people about this program," Williams said.  "Tomorrow morning I will wake up, I will get on social media, and I will start making connections.  I want to create a travel schedule that goes across all of the universities in Ohio. I want to talk to women's groups and sororities and I want to let them know that this is an organization that funds women's education.  It's only helping us with professional development and I want to spread that message."

Along with the title of Miss Ohio, Williams will receive a $10,000 scholarship, luggage from Sears, and a car from Graham Auto Mall.
