A native of Denham Springs, KT Scannell was crowned Miss Louisiana USA on 15 January 2022 and represented Louisiana at the Miss USA 2022 pageant in Reno, Nevada. During her reign KT graduated from Mississippi College with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and she intends to become a chiropractor.
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are KT’s state pageant photos.
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
KT started competing when she was 13 and at just 14 placed first runner-up to future Miss Teen USA Katherine Haik at Miss Louisiana Teen USA 2015 (both were 14, which is crazy!) using her full name Katie Scannell. She placed first runner-up a second time in 2016, then finished second runner-up in 2017 and 2018. In 2021 she competed in the Miss division for the first time. A college student in Mississippi, she ended up second runner-up at Miss Mississippi USA 2021 Bailey Anderson.
