While other Macon County students were heading back to class after Christmas break, 15-year-old Kellie Trammel was flying across the country to take to the catwalk.
The Franklin High School student was selected out of more than 200 other females from all over the country to fly to Los Angeles, California to participate in the International Models and Talent Association (IMTA) competition.
IMTA is a professional association of the finest and most successful modeling and talent training centers in the world. Since 1987, IMTA has become the recognized leader in putting new faces in front of the people whose business it is to identify the next rising star or supermodel. An impressive and constantly growing list of people who were first seen at IMTA conventions are now seen in magazines, TV, movies and fashion shows.
