Quotes

She also stressed the importance of  instilling agriculture education at an early age. "We should teach why and what we do in agriculture." Olson bragged on the strength of the Farm Bureau stating this is the 27th year in growth for the state program...
..."You can't help but leave with a sense of pride in your community," Dana Keller, Executive Director of the Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce, said. "People get a chance to really see how many wonderful services are available in Mexico." According to Keller, approximately 200 people usually attend the event...
...Preliminary competition will begin Sept. 9-11 and the final night will be Sept. 14. "The most exciting part is being able to represent the state of Missouri on a national level, "Hartman said. "I am very proud to call Missouri home and I want to show the rest of the nation why Missouri is such a great state. "I would like to encourage people to go to missamerica.org/vote and vote Missouri for America's People's Choice. The contestant with the most votes will make it in to the finals. There is no limit, so people can vote as many times as they would like leading up to the live telecast Sept. 14, on ABC." Hartman entered the Miss Missouri Pageant as Miss Springfield. It was her first year competing at the state level. Raised in Colorado, where her parents still live, Hartman is attending Lindenwood University in St. Louis, studying broadcast journalism. She has lived in Missouri for approximately four years, and said she considers Missouri her new home. The excitement of winning Miss Missouri is the momentum moving Hartman forward in preparing for the two weeks she will be competing in Atlantic City. Hartman has been preparing for the competition with the instruction of a group she calls a great team of experts. She has been doing mock interviews and roundtables to prepare for the interview portion of the competition. She has also decided to completely change her talent and has been working closely with Missouri dance and performance industry experts to create a new talent. Hartman has been figuring skating since she was two-years-old, but the pageant does not have an ice rink available. She competed for Miss Missouri as a lyrical dancer and said she is excited about her new talent, a Broadway-style jazz dance to the tune "Steppin Out With My Baby." "Staying fit is also very high on the agenda," Hartman said. "Maintaining a healthy and fit body requires time at the gym as well as a dedication to nutritious meals that fuel the body." As Miss Missouri, Hartman has worked with the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to raise money for area hospitals, promoted 4-H, promoted her platform Leaders for Tomorrow: Empowering Youth with focus on STEM education. She has also modeled for the Miss America gown sponsor, Tony Bowls, as a representative of Missouri and the Miss America organization. Hartman said her favorite aspect of being Miss Missouri thus far has been the people she has met. "I am lucky to have the opportunity to meet people from across the state and around the nation. I get to visit with them and hear their stories and their visions of the future." Page 2 of 2 - Hartman will be showing her wardrobe for Miss America at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24 in Mexico High School's Emmons Hall."
..."The main cause is better student safety," Pashia said. "It gets the cars off the street and kids will be loaded and unloaded from the back side of the building in a drive that will accommodate a lot more cars than the front driveway did. We are very grateful the school board approved the lane."
