Miss United States is getting back to work in the Capital Region.

Lily K. Donaldson just returned to RPI, after winning the national competition in Memphis last weekend.

The PhD student is from Tennessee, but she has lived in New York for a few years now. She represented New York state in the pageant, and won.

Donaldson will take part in the Menands Halloween parade on Sunday, October 30. She was booked to do that as Miss New York. Now the village will have Miss United States taking part in the Halloween event.
