WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- One of Wilmington's own has high hopes as she heads to the Miss USA Pageant June 3.
Miss North Carolina USA Sydney Perry is a UNCW student. Originally from Vermont, she moved to Wilmington to attend UNCW and study Marine Biology. In addition to being passionate about the ocean, Sydney said she'd love to break into the entertainment industry.
"The Miss Universe Organization is a great launch pad into the entertainment industry," she said.
