Hagan bested runner up Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers and third place winner Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton with her dance routine to James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing” and answering questions about school safety.

The 23-year-old beauty took home a $50,000 scholarship and is expected to spend the year raising awareness and money for Children’s Miracle Network.
