Jessica (Colwell) Pohn and I competed together in the Miss Iowa 2006 pageant season, and she went on to become first-runner-up to Miss Iowa 2007 Diana Reed. Although we hadn’t kept in touch much the last decade, we’ve recently reconnected in a BIG way 😉 Jessica is a driven, ambitious, and spunky former, and I know you’ll love hearing from another contestant who left her mark on that Miss Iowa stage!
Last week, we heard all about Katie’s extensive experience in pageantry. Today, we go a little more “behind the scenes” and get some true wisdom from this seasoned competitor.
Katie Kenny (formerly Katie Cole) was one of the girls I was privileged to coach and mentor in my first year as a Miss America local director. I worked with her on every area of competition, and our local came away with a Miss Iowa and a second-runner-up that year. But that wasn’t even close to the beginning – or the end – of Katie’s pageant career.
Welcome to Former Feature Friday! It’s time for Part Two with Miss Iowa 2007, and her thoughts on being Miss Iowa might surprise you 🙂
Welcome to the inaugural Former Feature Friday! She certainly left her mark at Miss America, and I couldn’t think of anyone better to kick things off!
