MENONMONIE, WI (WTAQ) - A UW-Stout student from Minnesota, and a Minnesota college grad from Wisconsin are among 51 contestants in the Miss USA Pageant on Sunday night.
26-year-old Christine Zamora of Greenfield will represent the Badger State in the pageant.
21-year-old Danielle Hooper of suburban St. Paul represents Minnesota.
Zamora graduated from the U of M in Minneapolis in business and retail management. She now works as a client specialist at Milwaukee’s OC Tanner Company.
Hooper will be a senior this fall at the Stout campus in Menomonie, majoring in management and retail merchandising.
Hooper made headlines last month when she went to the Menomonie High School prom with Charlie Gainey, a student with Down’s Syndrome who was nominated to the prom court.
