Administrators, staff and students at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at William Carey University hosted a special welcome home event Friday afternoon for Miss Mississippi and William Carey medical student Chelsea Rick.
Rick, who won the title of Miss Mississippi in July and was a top 15 finalist at the Miss America Pageant, was the guest of honor at a reception.
Rick completed one year of medical school at the university before winning the title of Miss Mississippi. She'll return to school next fall.
During the reception, she met fellow classmates and professors and signed autographs.
