Miss Teen USA returns to Chapin for homecoming

CHAPIN, S.C. (AP) -- Miss Teen USA K. Lee Graham is going home to Chapin for an event in her honor.

Lexington-Richland School District 5 officials say the 17-year-old Graham is scheduled to attend a homecoming event on Wednesday at Chapin High School.

Graham won the crown earlier this year in the Bahamas. She has said she plans to spend her yearlong reign promoting her Beauty Secrets campaign, emphasizing that being beautiful is about being happy with who you are and how you treat others instead of striving for an impossible model of perfection.

She has her own blog at where she writes about her journey to the national pageant and her life.
