Courtney Turner, of North Augusta, was named Miss South Carolina USA on Nov. 20 in Charleston, S.C.

Turner will represent South Carolina in the Miss USA pageant this spring.

"I couldn't be happier and feel more blessed to have won the title of Miss S.C. USA," Turner said. "I have dreamed of this moment since I was a little girl. I couldn't sleep the night I won because I was so excited."

Her father, Bill, said Courtney will use her platform to "further her passion to help expose and eliminate human trafficking."
