Heather Kendrick is a violinist and University of Michigan graduate (Go Blue!) with degrees in Music Education and Organizations. As an arts professional, she works with her platform daily and is Program Director for the M-Prize Competition, the world’s largest competition for chamber music. You may have caught her on last season’s “America’s Got Talent” with Detroit’s electro-pop violin band, NUCLASSICA. After taking time away for work and school, a former Miss Michigan encouraged Heather to compete in her last year of eligibility. Thankfully, she takes advice well and is thrilled to represent her beloved Michigan on the Miss America stage.
