Pageant Press: Miss Ohio to dedicate year to duty

She's taking a year away from school and work, but Roberta Camp said being Miss Ohio 2007 makes it all worth it... "I just want to give 100 percent to the Miss Ohio program this year," Camp said. "Last year's Miss Ohio, Melanie Murphy, made about 280 appearances and I want to try to make 300."

"I've really been doing a lot of planning and organizing," she said. "I've also been living on my mom's couch for the past week and a half. I'm going to be moving back in with her for the year. She's a great support and helps me out a lot."

"This week I will be visiting with sponsors and just getting the word out about the Miss Ohio program," she said. "It's a wonderful organization. It's provided me with over $16,000 in scholarships and gives nearly $50 million every year around the country. It has a long tradition of helping women reach their goals."

Camp said one of the things she is looking forward to the most is attending the National Character Counts! conference in Anaheim, Calif. Camp was certified with the organization last June and said she hopes to become a national Character Counts! spokesperson. Her Miss Ohio platform is "Change our World: Build Character."

"Building character is something I really believe in," she said. "It's something I don't think everyone is always aware of and should be."

In personal news, Loren has the week off, so we're taking a few road trips! :) Right now we're loading the dogs up and visiting my parents... after that, who knows! Please excuse whatever blogging hiatus may, or may not occur.


  1. Abby, I am so sorry about Ronnie! He was always very sweet to me and I will definately miss him!
    Take Care!

  2. Thanks Nancy. You’re right, Ron was always a kind person to everyone. Loren and I went to the viewing yesterday with my parents, but I had to work this morning and could not stay for the funeral.

    While I was in town I saw a flyer with the Lake Festival contestants, it’s nice to see a few girls trying that program for a second year!
