Rachel Philippona, a Batcap model, has hit the big time. Rachel will represent the state of Alabama in the Miss USA contest in Las Vegas NV on Sunday, April 19th.
McKenzie told 12voltnews.com “We are all so proud of Rachel. She worked with us at many events, like the SEMA Show, and was always a pleasure to be around. We wish her all the best. Everyone in Dothan will be glued to the TV.”
While the Miss Alabama USA system designates breast cancer awareness as the pageant’s platform Rachel, should she win the Miss USA title, will pursue a personal crusade for Special Olympics. She worked as a special education aide in high school and was a volunteer at local Special Olympic Games.
An auditorium filled with Special Olympic athletes and staff services came out to wish Rachel well before she left Dothan for Las Vegas.
Tune in on Sunday, April 19th and cheer for Rachel. Like all Batcap models Rachel does NOT suffer from “low voltage”.
