Erin Connor, 22, of Bridport was crowned Miss Vermont 2017 at the historic Vergennes Opera House on Friday evening.  Erin is a student at the University of Vermont, where she is studying Public Communication. She performed American Sign Language to The Greatest Love of All in the talent portion of the competition. Members of the deaf community from Vermont and Massachusetts attended the show to see her perform.

Connor lives her platform “Tailwinds: Training a New Generation of Female Scientists” through her many years promoting STEM and sharing her experience as a pilot across the state.  “As Miss Vermont, I will expand the experiments, connections, and programs open to young women who need to believe in themselves and reach for the sky and their limitless possibilities” she said. Erin will be representing the state at the Miss America pageant in historic Atlantic City in September.
