Miss North Carolina USA 2024 is Kenzie Hensley

Miss South Park, Kenzie Hensley, was crowned Miss North Carolina USA 2024 on Saturday, June 15 at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in North Charleston, South Carolina.

The 25-year-old chief marketing officer hailing from Surf City will now represent the Tar Heel State at Miss USA 2024 in Hollywood, California this August.

She succeeds Jordyn McKey, last year's winner and Miss USA 2023 Top 20 semifinalist.

Kenzie holds a degree in broadcast journalism from High Point University and a master's in integrated marketing communications from the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

The new Miss North Carolina USA is no stranger to pageantry, having previously held the title Miss North Carolina's Outstanding Teen 2015 and Miss North Carolina Teen USA 2017.

"Not a day has gone by in the last 2 years and 4 months where I wasn't thinking of this exact moment. Eternally grateful and unexplainably humbled to be your Miss North Carolina USA," she wrote online.
