NewsChannel 3 spoke with April Friday right before she boarded a plane to return home to Bladen County. Storms-Britt said, "It was a wonderful, great experience. Glad it's over, my feet are killing me! Long days, heat unbearable, women were fainting." April will continue her duties as Mrs. North Carolina, promoting her platform of helping those with substance abuse challenges.
