In September of 2016, Savvy Shields had the biggest night of her life right here in South Jersey when she was crowned the new Miss America at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Since then, Savvy keeps a special piece of AC with her everywhere she goes.

Savvy writes on her Instagram (see below) that she wears a necklace that bears the coordinates of Boardwalk Hall, so she never forgets where she was crowned. The trinket was a gift from one of her travel managers.

The Miss America 2018 competition returns to Boardwalk Hall in September.
