There she is
Thats her on the right, although Kandice Pelletier, 22, was not yet Miss Manhattan when this photo was taken at the Embassy Suites in Battery Park City March 19. She took the boroughs top honors and a $1,500 scholarship the next night and will compete for the Miss New York prize in June with hopes of becoming Miss America in September. If for some reason Pelletier, a Rockette, is not able to fulfill her duties as Miss Manhattan, Amelia Nelson, left, 22, the first runner-up and a recent graduate of New York University, will step in. Pelletier, a junior at N.Y.U. who lives in Hells Kitchen, was a runner-up in last years Miss Georgia competition.
