“She's all muscle,” Judd said. “She works out every day. She knows the perception of what aging looks like, and she didn't want to become that way.”

Judd said the pageant has a goal of encouraging women to stay active, physically fit and educated throughout their adult lives.

Before embarking on a career in finance, Kendricks received a bachelor's degree in business from East Central University in Ada and a Master of Business Administration from Oklahoma City University.

Kendricks, who lives in Oklahoma City and has 14 brothers and sisters, brought nearly 100 friends and relatives to the competition, Judd said. It was the first time all 15 siblings had been together in years.

Kendricks will represent Oklahoma at the national pageant Oct. 20-25 at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J.
