Kellie Stewart, a 16 year old junior representing Dallas at the Miss Texas Teen USA 2014 pageant, was crowned Miss Texas Teen USA 2014 on December 1, 2013.
Moments before, Kellie responded to her onstage question regarding the removal of the Pledge of Allegiance from schools:
"I do not think so...at all. The Pledge of Allegiance is what represents our country, it represents all of the people that are fighting for our country, who have given their lives...the families that have sacrificed.
I don't think -- at all -- that we should ever take that out. As long as we are American citizens, we should stand up EVERYDAY...to teach the younger generations what it is all about."
