Miss USA

Nicol Powell was crowned Miss Utah USA 2015

Twenty-year-old Nicol Powell from Salt Lake City was crowned Miss Utah USA 2015 this past December. During the pageant she also won the Miss Photogenic award. Growing up a tomboy playing volleyball, she never dreamed of modeling, and especially not entering pageants.

Nicol is currently a model and is represented by the About McCarty Talent Agency of Utah. She is a volleyball player- receiving a First Team All-State Award her senior year at Skyline High school and was the 4A MVP for the state of Utah in 2011. As a sports lover, she hopes to someday become a sports reporter for a television network.

Not all that glitters is gold. Being a model and pageant winner, Nicol has often found herself treated as any stereotypical, tall, skinny, beautiful, with-no-brains type. “Beauty will only take you so far," she says.

To her, the title of Miss Utah USA is a job and she is hoping to make Utahns proud of her at the Miss USA competition this July in Baton Rouge. Nicol will have a few months to prepare for Miss USA 2015, where she hopes to be crowned by the reigning Miss USA, Nia Sanchez. We wish her all the best!

Nicol Powell is the younger sister of Miss Utah USA 2013, Marissa Powell. Marissa said; "This past weekend was one of the best weekends of my entire life. I got to watch my little sister, Nicol Powell, be crowned Miss Utah USA 2015!! I have never quite felt the nerves, stress, excitement and gratitude that I did over the over the last couple of days watching my best friend succeed on such a big stage.

I am still overwhelmed with happiness that she gets to experience wearing the crown and representing such an amazing state. There isn’t a better feeling in the world that seeing your siblings radiate with happiness and achieve their goals. I am a PROUD big sister today!!!"
