Katie Bouchard hopes to be the first Miss Kentucky from Owensboro in 46 years. The 18-year-old Owensboro Community & Technical College student qualified for the state pageant after being crowned the Belle of Louisville last month. The last Owensboro Miss Kentucky was Cynthia Bostick in 1970. Bouchard was crowned Miss Daviess County in 2013 and worked to generate 7,000 donated pairs of eyeglasses to the Lion’s Club in Daviess County. She plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in social work at WKU and work with at-risk students.
