Kimberly just spoke to 5 health classes at Irving Middle school here
in Pocatello about "Speaking Out Against Bulling". This was a great
experience and had a blast being able to not only teach but learn from
these 6th and 7th graders.
Kristen Armstrong and I at the Star Elementary track celebration!

Great group of people, very fun to meet. Earlier that day Mrs. Salmon and Salmon's Mayor scooped ice cream at the community show and shine.
One thing that keeps a pageant running, is the elbow grease from everyone behind the scenes. Kimberly Paige (Mrs. Bannock County), Lacey Wirkus (Mrs. Star Garnet), and Chandra Porter (Mrs. Swan Valley), helped put on fake eyelashes, curl hair, and even had to sew a couple contestants in their outfit for the Miss Idaho Falls Pageant. It was a great turnout and a growing experience for not only the contestants but for us hostesses. Sheena Daniels (Mrs. Eagle Rock), helped with dress rehearsals and also cheered on all the contestants on pageant night. Before the crazy night, Austin Kade, a sponsor, gave everyone involved with the pageant any service they wanted. We all had fun getting our hair done and getting pampered before a long, fun, and exciting night.
Lacey Wirkus, Mrs. Star Garnet, was amazing at putting flyers together and organizing pickup of shoes, for Shoes for Love at Eastern Idaho's Biggest Garage Sale. With Kimberly Paige, Mrs. Bannock County, they were able to get one and a half truck beds of shoes in one hour. The people were so generous and it helped these queens put their goal into action.
Finally coming together as a whole, this group of beautiful ladies learned what it takes to do well in interview, how to stand with pretty feet, and what it takes to give your hair volume. Thanks again to all the sponsors that came and gave up part of their Saturday to teach us about the different aspects of the pageant!
One of the craziest experiences I have ever had was being a judge at the Mr. ISU pageant. I saw talents from playing a guitar, ball room dancing, to even a skit about the politics of big businesses. These guys were truly outstanding and a great group of guys to represent the college town of Pocatello.
