At a very young age, Deborah Norville triumphed in her town’s local Junior Miss beauty pageant when she was in high school. This gained her a lot of confidence to then compete in the 1976 American Junior Miss pageant as Georgia’s representative. She had lost the 1976 American Junior Miss pageant, but that gave her just enough motivation to change her career objective from law to television journalism and hit the bigger goal. She then presided over the 1999 America’s Junior Miss pageant.

Through Georgia Public Television, she was given an internship where she worked on “The Lawmakers” and covered the Georgia General Assembly.
