Pippa Leigh, Miss Hockanum Valley 2015, who is competing for Miss Connecticut on June 27, will attend the national launch of Greenwich resident Gretchen Carlson’s book Getting Real.

Both Carlson and Leigh hail from Greenwich. Carlson was Miss America1989 and Pippa is vying for Miss America 2016 this September if she wins Miss Connecticut in June.

Pippa said she thrilled to attend as she looks up to Carlson as a role model. Carlson’s focus on a strong education and using our talents as a gift from God inspire this current crop of competitors.
