Miss Wyoming -- A Class Act

I was delighted to learn that Jennifer McCafferty was tapped as "Miss Wyoming" for 2007. A resident of Laramie, where she's finishing her senior year as a Spanish major, Jennifer is a native of Scottsbluff, Nebraska. She's the daughter of Marty McCafferty and Kary McCafferty -- and granddaughter of good friends Jim and Naomi McCafferty of Whitney, Nebraska.

This is a beautiful young lady with great poise, as you might expect of a Miss Wyoming. She will represent her adopted state well in the Miss America contest. Jennifer has already demonstrated her commitment to worthwhile projects -- from expanding and improving upon foreign language education to raising funds for the Children's Miracle Network.

Jennifer was my guest on the “Live with Jim Thompson” radio show on Tuesday, July 24. The program aired on a variety of stations in the Dakotas, Wyoming, and Montana. It’s also archived on the internet at the program web site. The interview with Jennifer McCafferty is about half way into the program.

As I expected, she proved to be a delightful guest. She'll be a formidible competitor in the Miss America contest -- and whatever she chooses to pursue beyond college. She is.....a class act!
