A singer/songwriter and journalist from Leavenworth, Kan., Katie is Princess of America's 2019 Miss Southern States. She placed in the Top 8 at the Princess of America 2019 pageant.
Katie is all about keeping music education in schools by bringing awareness to and raising money for the Save The Music Foundation with her platform Music Healing the Heart and Soul.
"I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. But one thing is for sure, music is good for the heart and soul. Through my platform, music healing the heart and soul, my goal is to bring awareness to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, emphasizing keeping music in schools. As a graduate of the University of Saint Mary, I've put my English degree to use as a reporter for the Fort Leavenworth Lamp newspaper and as a singer/songwriter. Looking to write the next No. 1 hit for a major record label in Nashville, I'm your Miss Southern States, Katie Peterson."
