Our hearts are with our friend, Kira (Miss America 2015) right now, as its the last month of her reign as Miss America. On September 13, Kira will crown the next Miss America. We are both sad that her reign is coming to a close and also excited to see what new adventures await her in life. You wanna know something extremely cool? This little guy is going to walk with her on stage on the last night of preliminary competition at the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City:
And to add to this incredible series of events, one of our dear friends is Miss Florida and will be competing for the title of Miss America! We have known Mary Katherine Fechtel (affectionately known as MK to us) through Dance Marathon at UF, where she has been a Family Relations Captain the past couple of years. She has become very dear to each one of us during this time, but probably none dearer than to Emma. MK has been such an amazing role model and friend to our children, and we have been so thankful for the role she has had in the lives of all of the kids involved in Dance Marathon at UF.
Until Sept 10, we can vote for America's Choice for the Miss America Competition. The state title holder with the most votes through social media will automatically make it to the Top 15 in the competition. All we have to do is vote via Facebook or Twitter with the phrase "Florida #MissAmericaVote".
And make sure you watch the Miss America Competition Sept 13 at 9:00pm EST on ABC!
