My Real Vote for Miss America
Posted by Paul on 9/15/2013 2:24:00 PM
How could I overlook one of our own? This is why I need to avoid entertainment blogging. After my post about Miss Kansas, which occurred just because I read an article about her dentistry connection, several people let me know that our very own Miss Missouri had legit dental connections of her own. Shelby Ringdalh, Miss Missouri, is the daughter of Dr Bruce and Erika Ringdahl in Columbia. My apologies for this oversight!
It looks like we have a new leader in the clubhouse. Shelby is a Rock Bridge High School graduate and a senior at TCU majoring in musical theater. She advocates for abused children through the CASA program in Missouri. This solid resource helps children not get neglected in the overburdened legal and social service system. While I've never met Shelby, how can Missouri lose with such a bright and lovely lady representing us? Congrats to the Ringdahl family, Columbia, and all fans across the state for her accomplishments. Once again, dentistry is leading the way!
PS - Alas, Miss New Jersey won over both these worthy candidates. I'm sure she will represent America well but I can still be a homer for the Midwest. Now, back to my regular blogging duties.
