In her senior year of high school, Sawyer represented the Commonwealth of Kentucky at America’s Junior Miss scholarship pageant and won. The achievement was due in part to an eloquent essay that she wrote about music during the Civil War.

The America Junior Miss title took her on a tour around the country from 1962 to 1965, where Sawyer says she learned to think on her feet with poise and grace.
