Miss Wyoming 2010, Alicia Grove of Rock Springs, was crowned in June at the WYO Theatre in Sheridan. Next Tuesday, she'll be heading to Las Vegas to compete for the Miss America crown. She tells us what she's been doing to prepare.
Along with training for the big competition, Grove, who graduated last year with a nursing degree from the University of Wyoming, works as an EMS ambulance nurse. Even with that full schedule, she has managed to travel around Wyoming to make over fifty presentations on her platform, Heart Health.
So we had to ask; has she ever worn her crown while giving someone CPR? She good naturedly responded.
The Miss America Pageant will be broadcast live at 9 pm Eastern time on the ABC Network January 15th from the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
