Hayley Frances Leach won the title of Miss Kentucky Junior Teen America in January. To win the title Leach competed in four areas of competition, including private interview, talent/spokesmodel, physical fitness and evening gown and was the only one in the pageant’s history to score perfectly on the private interview segment.

Leach will compete for the national title of Miss Junior Teen America later this year. During her reign, she will be going to various events and fundraisers and continue to be active in the community and state. Her platform is autism awareness and she plans to speak throughout the Bluegrass educating others about this developmental disorder.

Leach is the current Miss Preteen Grant County Fair. She resides in Dry Ridge with her parents, Tom and Rebecca Leach, her brother Matthew and grandfather Don Sullivan.
