The old saying that it takes a village to raise a child is something Maggie Bridges believes wholeheartedly.
From singing in First United Methodist Church and performing in Bainbridge Little Theatre productions to taking piano lessons from Martha Mobley for 10 years, Bridges is rooted in Decatur County. It’s where the people who love her, care for her and make sure she’s always at her best surround her.
Now, Bridges can show her home and the rest of the country how the lessons she’s learned while growing up in Southwest Georgia have earned her the title of Miss Georgia 2014.
“The feeling is surreal,” Bridges said. “But I’m exactly the same person I am before I left and became Miss Georgia.”
