Kalispell woman crowned Miss Montana USA

Kadie Latimer

KALISPELL, Mont. -

Kalispell's Kadie Latimer is the new Miss Montana USA.

Latimer, a Glacier HS alum, is currently a student at Flathead Valley Community College where she's studying to become a medical assistant.

The newly crowned Miss Montana USA recently stopped by our Kalispell studios and chatted about her pageant experience and the question she was asked on stage.

"'Why would you like to be miss Montana and why would you make a better one besides the other girls?' It was a very tough question because you don't want to put anyone else down," said Latimer. "But I just tried to say how I'm a very approachable person and I think that's what Miss Montana needs to be a great leader in the state."

Latimer will represent Montana in the Miss USA pageant next summer in Miami.
