(Original Caption) Mississippi's 22-year-old Cheryl Prewitt beams under her crown as the new Miss America. "I think it's wonderful," she says of her new title which she won 9/8 here. She said the milkman first predicted she would win the title when she was 5-years-old. Recovering from an accident that crushed her leg when she was 11, Cheryl Prewitt now reigns as Miss America. The 5-foot-7-inches tall, 110-pound beauty queen claims a religious miracle when she was 17 helped her overcome the accident.
