It was the night of a lifetime for Miss Colorado and Grand Junction native Beckie Hughes. The 21–year–old Fruita grad took to the stage for the 57th Annual Miss USA Pageant Friday night.
Hughes didn't make it into the top 15, but you can bet it's a night she won't forget and Grand Junction is definitely proud of her.
Hughes owns two local boutiques in town. One store sells shoes, the other sells clothes.
Hughes is the second Grand Junction woman to be Miss Colorado. Keena Bonella represented the state last year.
