ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. Nina Davuluri became the second consecutive contestant from New York to win the Miss America pageant.

She attended St. Joseph High School in St. Joe, Mich., according to WSJM radio.

Davuluri won the title as the nationally televised pageant returned home to Atlantic City.

She succeeds another Miss New York, Mallory Hagan, whose tenure was cut short when the pageant moved back to Atlantic City after a six-year stint in Las Vegas, where winners were chosen in January.

Davuluri performed a classical Bollywood fusion dance for her talent competition. She is the first winner of Indian descent.

After the traditional frolic in the Atlantic City surf Monday morning, she will head to the scene of a devastating boardwalk fire in Seaside park and Seaside Heights Monday afternoon.
