This Miss Is a Hit
Robin Fletcher also alerted me to a recent story about a former student who made good. Kandice Pelletier, a wonderful young woman whom I taught in the late 90's, was a contender in this weekend's Miss America contest. She was representing New York, where her post-high-school successes have taken her in the years since her graduation; an article in the Marietta Daily Journal mentioned that she had also been the model for a Radio City Rockette statue (she has worked as a Rockette for a while) and that she had a role in the recent film version of The Producers. Anyone who knew Kandice knew that she was destined for success; I expect to hear her name many more times in the coming years.
