Wilmington is home to the new Miss USA. Wilmington native Kristen Dalton won the Miss USA pageant Sunday night. The former Hoggard High student is the reigning Miss North Carolina. Stardome is nothing new for the Dalton family. Kristen's mother served as Miss North Carolina in 1982, and her sister served as Miss North Carolina Teen USA. Kristen's other sister is engaged to Chad Micheal Murray of One Tree Hill. Neighbors said the family deserves the recognition. "She is the real deal, she isn't just a pretty face, she is smart and ambitious," said neighbor Mark Hosley. Dalton left Las Vegas for her new home in New York City as the new Miss USA.
