Introducing the New Miss America

Miss America

Here she comes, Miss America.

Teresa Scanlan of Nebraska is our new Miss America.  She wants to be a judge and later a politician.

Teresa Scanlan of Nebraska will spend the next year as Miss America, besting 52 other pageant hopefuls at Saturday’s event in Las Vegas.

The 17-year-old Gerig resident and Scottsbluff High School student played the piano during the competition, and her platform issue was tackling eating disorders. She hopes to attend law school, become a judge and eventually a politician, according to the Miss America website.

Scanlan succeeds last year’s honoree, Caressa Cameron from Virginia. The 22-year-old Virginia Commonwealth University student is the National Goodwill Ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network.

The other four finalists were Emoly West of Oklahoma, Jacquie Brown of Washington, Jalee Fuselier of Hawaii and Alyse Eady of Arkansas.

This year’s contest, held at the Theater for the Performing Arts at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, was hosted by Chris Harrison, of “The Bachelor” fame, as well as model and “Dancing With the Stars” alum Brooke Burke.
