Megan Fuller earns Miss Massachusetts crown

The third time was the charm for 22-year-old Megan Fuller, who traded in her Miss Collegiate Area title for that of Miss Massachusetts 2015, as she was crowned at the Hanover Theatre in Worcester on June 28.

Fuller had competed three times for the state crown, and was second runner-up in 2014. She said that as she was waiting for the final announcement to happen, she had a sense of what was coming.

“I had a feeling that I finally did it,” she said. “So, I started to shake a little bit, because I think I knew I had finally pulled it off. It was the most exhilarating experience I’ve ever felt.”

The native of Attleboro performed a Jazz Dance that helped earn her the scores necessary to earn the competition’s top spot.

Fuller said that as she begins preparing for September’s Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, she still plans to work hard on her platform, For the Common Good: Promoting Proactive Healthcare. Recently receiving her Masters in Public Health (literally the Wednesday before her crowning), she plans to educate as much of the Commonwealth about preventative healthcare.

Nearly speechless about competing in September, Fuller said, “I’m [really] going to dance at Boardwalk Hall. I’m excited about it.”

Whether she brings home the national title or not, she hopes to do much for the Miss Massachusetts program.

It’s so important that we continue to raise scholarship money,” she said. “One of the greatest donations we got this year was from the National Elks Foundation. I’m heading there this coming weekend to accept this award and thank them for the scholarship they donated. I’m thrilled that I’m the one who gets to do that…as Miss Massachusetts, no less.”
