Scarlotte Deupree Kilgore (born 1980) held the title of Miss Alabama 2002 and was 1st runner-up to Miss America 2003.[2][3]

Miss Alabama[edit]

Deupree competed at Miss Alabama as Miss Camellia and had competed in the pageant four previous times.[4][5] Her talent was a vocal performance of the song, "Holding Out for a Hero". Her personal platform was adult literacy, which she chose in high school after she discovered that 25 percent of people from Alabama read at a very low reading level. She is a graduate of Samford University.[6] While at Samford, she was inducted into the Kappa Chapter of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority.[7]

Life after Miss Alabama[edit]

Deupree is married to Allen Kilgore, a lawyer and corporate attorney at General Electric. They have two daughters named Virginia Price Kilgore and Jordan Lee Kilgore.[8] She is currently on the board of directors for The Literacy Council and serves on the Board of the Birmingham Children's Theater.[9]
