HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The new Miss Mississippi was in Hattiesburg Thursday, making one of her first public appearances since winning the state pageant in Vicksburg less than two weeks ago. Chelsea Rick met attendees at the annual Taste of the Pine Belt at the Lake Terrace Convention Center. 

Rick is a Fulton native and is a second year medical student at William Carey University.

She said she was glad to see her friends in the Hub City.

"Being in medical school and preparing this year to compete in Miss Mississippi, what was going to be my final time competing, has really prepared me for the job," Rick said. "So, I feel capable to handle the role. And it's not just heels and dresses, it's hard work and it's service and that's what I want people to know," she said.

Rick will represent Mississippi in the Miss America Pageant in September.
