Reagan holds several pageant titles (including her current title of America’s Ideal Miss Historic Tennessee), but one of the titles Reagan is most proud of is “Type 1 Diabetes Advocate.” Reagan uses her platform (Extra Sweet Just Like Me) to go out into the community and spread awareness about T1D, and serves as a mentor to children who have been recently diagnosed. “Anytime someone is diagnosed in the counties surrounding mine, I give my best effort at helping them in any way, especially the younger girls.” Reagan also raises funds for JDRF through her One Walk team, has participated in clinical trials, and is a Youth Advocacy Leader.

Reagan is a straight-A student, member of the Beta Club and Future Business Leaders of America, and enjoys working out in her spare time to help relieve stress. Reagan looks forward to taking on a whole new platform this summer, Capitol Hill!
