Lauren Roush (21) was recently crowned Miss West Virginia USA 2017. She will represent her state at the next Miss USA Pageant. West Virginia has never won the Miss USA title, but came very close in 1984 when their delegate was named the first runner-up. They have only ever placed ten times at Miss USA, but 4 of those placements came in the last 12 years. Their most recent placement was this year when their delegates was one of the top 15 semi-finalists.
