This year’s Azalea Festival Queen is former Miss America Heather French Henry.

When Heather was crowned Miss Kentucky and Miss America in 2000, WWAY’s Chris Phillips was working in Louisville and interviewed her there.

He spoke with her again yesterday over the phone. She’s in China doing business but will soon be here to receive her crown.

    How do they determine who the queen will be? Because it was be nice for a change to see queens of different nationalities. I am sure there are some fine black, hispanic, asian or native american women who are worthy of the position.
