(AP) WASHINGTON - Miss America Mallory Hagan says she made it to the inauguration on Monday despite the chilly weather.
In an interview Saturday, Hagan had said she wasn’t sure if she would attend President Barack Obama’s public swearing-in ceremony Monday even though she had a ticket because "it’s going to be freezing."
But on Monday she tweeted a photo of herself from the inauguration wrapped in a blue scarf with the words "bundled up!" She later tweeted that she was "proud to be an American."
Hagan, a 23-year-old Alabama native who lives in New York, won the Miss America title earlier this month.
