The Special Piece of Atlantic City Miss America 2017 Keeps With Her

In September of 2016, Savvy Shields had the biggest night of her life right here in South Jersey when she was crowned the new Miss America at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Since then, Savvy keeps a special piece of AC with her everywhere she goes.

Savvy writes on her Instagram (see below) that she wears a necklace that bears the coordinates of Boardwalk Hall, so she never forgets where she was crowned. The trinket was a gift from one of her travel managers.

Miss America Officially Moves Headquarters Back to Atlantic City

So I know you all can't read what is engraved on my necklace, but here's the story. One of my travel managers, Liz @mrsbrown477 , gave this to me for Christmas. Engraved are the longitude and latitude points of Boardwalk Hall, so now I always have the location where I was crowned with me. Being there today in Boardwalk Hall always brings with it such a flood of emotions, it's hard to explain. After the ribbon cutting today for the new office, I had some work to do before I left again. I signed autographs, etc. but also talked about recording my farewell, program book cover and even my "show me your shoes" shoes. Like what?!? This is all happening way too fast, feel like it was yesterday. #missamerica #boardwalkhall #timeflies #missamerica2017
