Miss America 2006, Jennifer Berry
Today at about 12:45 PM Jennifer Berry, Miss America 2006 was the MC and special guest of the Miss Maryland Scholarship Organization’s pre-pageant luncheon meeting. This meeting was attended by many VIPs in the organization including many titleholders. See links to our photo tour of the event.
What impressed me most at this event in addition to the many beautiful ladies in attendance was the sense of purpose this organization instills in these young ladies. Jennifer recounted in her speech that she went to the Miss Oklahoma pageant several times before she won the title of Miss Oklahoma and therefore an opportunity to compete for the Miss America prize. Along the way she earned scholarship money to pay for her education so she can, in turn, go on to be an educator herself.
During her year as Miss America Jennifer also became the national spokesperson for MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). After loosing a close friend as a result of a drunk driving accident Jennifer has been passionate about fighting underage drinking.
