Christina Denny represented Maryland at the 2014 Miss America Pageant at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She made the TOP 10. Denny is a teacher at Echelon Academy in Olney, a school for children with learning disabilities. She teaches students between 6th and 10th grades.
Christina is a graduate of the University of Maryland, and she hopes to study speech pathology in graduate school.
The first Miss USA from Maryland, Mary Leona Gage, won the Miss USA Pageant in 1957. However, she was later discovered to be a mother of two sons and was therefore dethroned. In 2012, Nana Meriwether placed 1st runner-up, but became Miss USA 2012 when Olivia Culpo won Miss Universe 2012 in Las Vegas.
