Miss Alabama, Ashley Davis, spent time in York Sunday for a meet and greet reception with the public.
Davis is a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Davis won the crown after winning the Miss West Central Alabama Pageant in Livingston in January. She won the Miss Alabama title in June.
"The minute I set foot on this city, in this area, and met these people, they are such a warm and embracing people who just bring you into their fold, make you part of their family, and I'm hooked for life," Davis said.
Davis will compete for the Miss America crown in January in Las Vegas. The finals will air on WTOK-TV.
