The Road to Miss America

18 07 2011

The road to Miss America is traveled by very few, very lucky individuals.  Every day I wake up and thank God for being one of those lucky few.  Since passing on the crown of Miss America 2009, one of the best experiences I get on a daily basis is watching the next generations on their journey to the crown.  I love following each class and each young woman as they develop and grow tremendously, build upon the sisterhood and create new remarkable memories.

This last week, I got to witness the start of one journey for a very special, very blessed young woman.  As soon as we wrapped up in Miami, we hopped on board our plane to Arkansas for the Miss Arkansas pageant.  I got to attend a preliminary night of competition as well as finals night where the beautiful and talented Kristen Glover was crowned Miss Arkansas 2011!  Every woman completely blew me away with their grace and poise and I wish them nothing, but the absolute best!
