The Miss America Pageant was Saturday, and what a great show. As a former local and state contestant in the Miss America Program, I love to watch the pageant every year. I wore my crown as I watched 52 amazing women vie for the title of Miss America. And the winner is…Miss Indiana Katie Stam! I was very impressed with Katie and am thrilled that she is the first Miss America for the State of Indiana. As a former Miss Ball State University, I have good friends from the Miss Indiana Pageant circuit, I extend congratulations to them as well!
Competing in the Miss America System was a very important part of my life. I believe in this amazing program that encourages education for women and community service. I am an advocate for women’s issues and won The Miss America Community Service Award for raising awareness of Teen Dating Violence: www.stopdatingviolence.com.
Here are a couple photos of me from my competition days:
