Inscription.  
"I walked with a limp for six years. Then five years ago, when I was 17, my parents took me to a healing service. That meeting changed my life!…Yes, I believe in miracles. My being Miss America is proof that miracles do still happen. Nothing can shake what I believe in. When people question my strong beliefs in miracles and God, I just tell them what happened. It give me an opportunity to plant seeds of God's love in people's hearts."

"Cheryl Told Our Students And The Nation How it Happened," Life, (Oral Roberts Evangelistic/Assoc., Tulsa, OK) 4/1980
