“This girl is only 18 years old, but she seems so much more mature.”
In one form or another, that was the reaction of audience members attending the 2011 Boone County Health Center Gala last Wednesday evening, June 29.
Many in the audience of more than 425 were impressed with the poise, appearance, personality and speaking ability of 2011 Miss America Teresa Scanlan, the featured guest. Many children participated in the question and answer session before Miss Scanlan’s piano concert. Many of the youngsters also had the opportunity to visit Miss Scanlan one-on-one and have their picture taken with her.
Miss Scanlan’s primary message, especially to young people, was to find something they love doing, stick with it, and let God work through them to accomplish great things.
