Miss Colorado Madison Marsh, an active-duty military member, made history by becoming the first military winner of the Miss America pageant.

A U.S. Air Force Academy graduate, she impressed judges with her classic looks, femininity, intelligence, character, and strength.

Marsh said, “You can achieve anything. The sky is not the limit and the only person that’s stopping you is you.”

According to her profile, “From a young age, [Marsh] had a love of science and a dream to be a pilot and astronaut. Her parents encouraged her dreams, sending her to Space Camp when she was 13 years old where she met astronauts and fighter pilots.”

“Around that time, she learned about the United States Air Force Academy. At 15 years old, she started flying lessons earning her pilot’s license two years later and then began to work towards her goal of becoming a cadet,” it continues.

Marsh said, “As a freshman at the Academy, you might have a hard time finding your identity in a very new and challenging environment.”

“My cousin had competed in pageants for a long time, and one of the big things about it that I love is the community service aspect and the focus on public speaking,” she added.

Sen. Cotton wrote on X, “Congratulations to Fort Smith native and Air Force 2nd Lt. Madison Marsh on being crowned Miss America.”

“Madison, all of Arkansas is proud!” added Cotton.

Marsh, a second lieutenant and Harvard student, has a passion for flying and aspires to advocate for cancer research.

She has been actively involved in raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer, a cause close to her heart after losing her mother to the disease.

“My mom was a huge runner, even when she was going through chemotherapy treatments,” wrote Marsh in her Air Force profile.

“When we talked about ways to raise money, we wanted it to remember who my mom was and not what cancer had made her,” explained Marsh.

Marsh’s achievement exemplifies the American dream, serving as a role model for women and girls.
