Miss USA is…an NTEU Member

Kara McCullough, a scientist at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Chapter 208 (NRC) member, was crowned Miss USA Sunday night.

McCullough, who represents the District of Columbia, was born in Naples, Italy, and raised in Virginia Beach, Va. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with a concentration in Radiochemistry from South Carolina State University.
