Recent Marist College graduate, Emelia Lartey, was named "1st Runner Up" in the 2014 Miss Ghana USA pageant on July 12th. 

The pageant's mission is "to find and promote exceptional women with a strong interest in education, humanitarian issues and the ghanaian culture" and I'm sure Ms. Lartey has certainly made all of her fellow Red Foxes proud! Congratulations, Emelia!
