Regina Gray is the reigning Miss Wisconsin USA 2018 and will be representing America’s Dairyland at the upcoming Miss USA competition. The 27-year-old Milwaukee native succeeded 2017 winner Skylar Witte, and she will be aiming to be only the fourth Miss Wisconsin USA in history to finish in the Top 10. She is an International Baccalaureate Scholar and was inducted into the Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society, studying communications and mathematics while in college.
After her father passed away prematurely due to a massive heart attack, she began working with the American Heart Association to spread heart health awareness in her community. She is now a state ambassador for AHA since claiming the Miss Wisconsin USA title.
Thanks to her current platform, Regina hopes “to continue to advocate for heart health awareness and prevention on a nationwide level.”
Miss USA takes place Monday, May 21 at Hirsch Memorial Coliseum in Shreveport, Louisiana. The pageant will air live on FOX. The Miss Universe pageant will take place at a yet-to-be-determined date.
