Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs Student to Compete in MISS MISSOURI USA® Pageant
November 1, 2012
Though she is a native of Little Rock Arkansas, Logan Tri-5 student Jennifer Missouri will compete as Miss St. Charles USA in the 2013 MISS MISSOURI USA® Pageant at the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts at Lindenwood University in St. Charles. Preliminary competition will be held Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. and finals will take place on Sunday, November 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets for this event can be purchased online at www.missmissouriusa.com or check out Jennifer’s website at www.missjenmissouri2013.wix.com/missstcharles.
The winner of MISS MISSOURI USA will advance to the nationally televised MISS USA Pageant. Each pageant contestant will compete in three equal phases of preliminary competition: swimsuit, evening gown, and interview. The scores from the preliminary phases of competition are added up, and the contestants with the highest composite scores become semifinalists. The number of semifinalists, between 10 and 15, and will be determined by the total number of contestants in the competition.
Jennifer’s contestant platform is based on her childhood where she witnessed the struggles of families including child abuse and neglect, lack of academic motivation and achievement as well as families residing in low socioeconomic situations. Since that time, she has volunteered in children’s hospitals and has dedicated herself to helping children in her local community in any way possible. “I am extremely passionate about my platform of preventing child abuse and neglect,” she says. “If chosen to represent the state of Missouri, I will be able to share my personal life stories to those who can relate or may have had the same experiences.”
Before deciding to attend Logan, Jennifer, 26, who lives in St. Charles, talked with Logan alumni Dr. Julian McMurray (class of April 2011) and Dr. Rodney Williams (class of December 2000), who is also a member of the Logan Board of Trustees. She holds a Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff and is the first college graduate in her family.
