On June 19th I found myself back at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. This time, I was in the audience watching a fantastic group of Colorado's young women pursuing their dreams.
Congratulations to the newly crowned Melaina Shipwash - Miss Colorado America 2010, Lexie O'Dowd- Miss Colorado Outstanding Teen 2010, and Kayla Thomas- Miss Colorado Teen 2010. Kayla and her family have been a part of our lives for several years and I'm so excited for them. As Kayla's mentor, I am proud of her accomplishments on and off the pageant stage! She is becoming a remarkable young woman.
