Miss Ohio, Erica Gelhaus, is from my home county and my parents report she has been busy in her hometown and around the area; I imagine this is the case with most Miss Ohios. Recently she visited my alma mater and my mom's place of work to reward two elementary classes that raised money for the Children's Miracle Network.
The principal was incapable of capturing Miss Ohio's crown in the photo below with my mom. So imagine our surprise when these pictures that she let the secretary download ended up not on the bulletin board, but in one of the glass display cases!
I believe the winning class won a pizza party, after which Erica signed autographs and took pictures:
My mom said she's never seen "Grease," a grounds keeper and bus driver, move as fast as he did to take a picture with Miss Ohio!
