Miss KY President Emeritus, Jamie Breeding and Laura meeting with Senator Mitch McConnell

On July 2, 2016, Laura Jones, Miss Danville, was crowned Miss Kentucky 2016.  She is the daughter of Tom and Pamela Jones of Fisherville in Spencer County and the second oldest of seven children.  Laura is 23 years old and a graduate of Kentucky Christian University with a degree in University Studies & Biblical Studies and a minor in Counseling Psychology.  She plans to become an eating disorders counselor and life coach. 
Laura's platform issue is "WAIT: What Am I Thinking?: which is a program she started that details her own struggles with an eating disorder and focuses on raising education and awareness for these issues.  She received both preliminary swimsuit and talent awards.  For talent, she played the Michael Jackson hit "Smooth Criminal" on the electric violin. 

At the 2017 Miss America Pageant Laura placed in the top 12 and was selected as the America's Choice finalist.       
As Miss Kentucky, Laura serves as the spokesperson for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's "Kentucky Proud" program which encourages consumers of all ages to purchase products produced in Kentucky and to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.  She delivers this message to all age groups in schools throughout the commonwealth.
