Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
— Miss America 1979 —
"I graduated with a degree in apparel design and fashion merchandising at VPI and SU in Virginia. I was a cheerleader all four years there, and also instructed cheerleading clinics during the summers. I was with Golden Eagle Cheerleading schools and was head instructor for them for three years. So I guess you could say cheerleading was a big part of my life. Some people look down at it and say, 'Oh, she was just a cheerleader.' But so what—you've got to have that pizzazz."
