Miss Ohio 2009 made a special visit to Zanesville today.
Erica Gelhaus stopped by Primrose Retirement to meet and greet with the residents and visit their own Miss Primrose.
"Each Primrose around the state actually crowns their own Miss Primrose and they represent their Primrose at the Miss Ohio Pageant," said Gelhaus.
Gelhaus has been staying busy going to school at Otterbien College, but also traveling the state.
"She's been touring the state of ohio with more than 42,000 miles on her vehicle, meeting and greeting the residents and people of the state," said Miss Ohio Executive Director Steven Olivari. "She's being an ambassador for herself as well as our program and her platform, which is reading for children."
Miss Ohio will continue to reign for one more month, squeezing in more visits across the state. Soon she will crown the next Miss Ohio for 2010.
