Overland Park, KS
Miss America 1997
"'When I was about 15 years old, I realized that someone very close to me was not able to read,' That initial interest translated into involvement at Florida State University, where she served as president of the Campus Alliance for Literacy until graduating magna cum laude... "There are diseases we can't cure and problems we can't solve, but one thing we do know how to do is teach people to read... I believe in the power of each individual to make a difference and I encourage everyone to get involved even if it's just with one individual or one organization."
Max Jennings, "There She Is...," Fairfax Journal, (Virginia), 12/16/1996
