Although I didn't walk away as the next MNOT, I am very honored to have been awarded scholarships for 2nd Runner Up, The Anne & Hal Community Service Award, Preliminary Evening Gown and On Stage Question as well as the Producers Award for selling the most Ad pages for our program book. I am SO grateful to my directors, the entire Coon Rapids Committee, the Community of Coon Rapids, sponsors: (LeChic, The pageant Shop by Michael's, Paula Preston. Gianna Capuzzi, John Nelson, MAI), Mallory Hagen, friends, family, MAO sisters, and everyone who supported me, prayed for me, sent or spoke words of encouragement. I couldn't have done it without you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! I look forward to continuing my reign as Miss Coon Rapids Outstanding Teen until January when I crown my successor. After that, I plan to focus on finishing high school, and am excited to start touring colleges to pursue a career in elementary education. As far as competing again... I have officially aged out of MAOT, but, I'm sure you'll find me on a MAO stage eventually.
