Miss Virginia at Park Grove Retirement Community

ROANOKE (WSLS) - Miss Virginia Courtney Garrett sang an opera selection from the movie "The Godfather" for people at the Park Grove Retirement Community.

It was part of the annual ice cream social that every Miss Virginia has been involved with for about 20 years.

Garrett says the reason she's at the retirement community is to spread her platform of defying disabilities.

"Its about educating the community about different disabilities that are affecting many Americans today and how we can better accommodate them and move to a sense of empowerment and community" Miss Virginia said.
