Posted on June 9, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Two-year-old Laura Bell Bundy after she won the 2- to 3-year-old category in the state Little Miss USA competition, March 14, 1984. Bundy won four trophies and the title “Precious Little Miss USA.” Laura said winning the trophies made her “feel happy.” She rated high in the interview she had with the judges. She told them she wanted to be Miss America and wear a crown. Bundy then went on to the national Little Miss USA competition in Nashville. A Lexington native, she grew up to become a singer and actress who has performed on Broadway, on TV and in movies. She recently married TBS executive Thom Hinkle in a ceremony at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif. Click here to see another image of Bundy from our archives. Photo by John C. Wyatt | Staff
