The Joy of Life

13 06 2011

In January 2010, I lost a very dear friend to breast cancer.  I actually tell a little bit more of her story back in one of my blogs from April during the Miss Indiana Kick-Off.  After you read a little bit about Joy, you can’t help but feel her spirit and know how amazing she was.  It has been my honor to help establish and present an award in Joy’s Memory: The Joy of Life Award.

Tonight, myself, along with four other esteemed judges read through 17 Teen applications and 26 Miss applications (Wow!) to choose the recipients of a $500.00 and $1,000.00 scholarship.

The judging was so difficult, but we unanimously chose the two young women who would carry the legacy of Joy.  I can’t wait to share with you all their fantastic essays.

In the Spirit of Joy…XOXO-Katie
