Celebrating the Sisterhood of Miss and Mrs. Nebraska America

It’s pageant week! This month’s newsletter pays tribute to our single pageant sisters...Miss
Nebraska America. In 1987, I was honored to assist on the Miss Nebraska Pageant Board, in
 my hometown of North Platte, by serving on the activities committee for the contestants during pageant week. It was during that time,  that I learned of the Mrs. Nebraska America Pageant!  I was introduced to Executive Director-Jan Wilcoxen and 1985 Mrs. Nebraska-Marcelle Broome who were in attendance at the Saturday night finals, and they encouraged me to compete for the Mrs. Nebraska America title, in Lincoln, that following April.  And as the saying goes, the rest is history!

The Miss and Mrs. Nebraska America Pageants have had a special bond over the past 26 years. We have made appearances together, judged each others' competitions, had former Miss Nebraska titleholders perform at our pageants, and even assisted each other with pageant
preparation!  This Saturday, 19 beautiful women will compete for the title of Miss Nebraska America. And as always, Mrs. Nebraska titleholders and contestants will be in North Platte routing for, and supporting their favorite local contestant. Preliminaries will be held at the North Platte High.
