There is a new "Miss Rhode Island!" Nineteen year old Jessica Marfeo from Exeter was crowned Saturday night. Jessica is a University of Rhode Island student double majoring in biology and education. She is also a cancer survivor. Jessica was featured on ABC6 News back in January, when she was named an "Inaugural Scholar" and was invited to attend President Obama's second Inauguration. She will now represent Rhode Island in the Miss America pageant in September. Congratulations!
