People in Northeast Wyoming had a chance to meet someone who was almost Miss America.
Miss Wyoming herself, Lexie Madden stopped at the Wal-marts in Gillette and Sheridan Saturday.
She finished as the third runner-up in the Miss America pageant earlier this year.
Madden was at the stores meeting fans and promoting the Miss America pageant and its partner, Catalina Swimwear.
Madden says it feels good to come back to Sheridan where she won her crown last year.
"It's good. I actually went to college in Sheridan for a little bit when I was a freshman for my first semester and played volleyball here. So it's good to be back. It kind of has a little bit of a home feeling just because I was here for a while," said Madden.
Madden only has the title for a little longer. The next Miss Wyoming pageant is in mid-June in Sheridan.
