Miss Iowa Taylor Wiebers Paid Us a Visit in Studio
Fresh off of the Miss America Pageant, Miss Iowa Taylor Wiebers joined us in studio. Maybe I'm a little biased, but she should have won the crown. She's really is a great person.
Taylor even brought her crown and sash with her:
Taylor was crowned Miss Iowa in June 2015. She competed at Miss America in September 2015 where she won preliminary talent on night one of competition and lifestyle & fitness in night three. She was the first double prelim winner at Miss America in 15 years! Taylor finished as a top 12 finalist.
Originally from Clinton, Iowa, Taylor will be a senior at the University of Iowa and is on the Dean's List; a National Honors Society member; AP student; a recipient of Drake University's Presidential Scholarship and Drake's Highest Musical Theatre Scholarship.
Taylor is a talented vocalist and absolutely loves performing! Through the Miss America Organization, Taylor has had the opportunity to not only perform but also share her passions with others. The program also provides financial support for her education.
Taylor credits a solid family foundation for shaping her into the young woman she has become, giving her the knowledge and assurance needed to teach her younger siblings that with confidence and determination anything is possible. With the support of her family and friends, she knows her dreams and goals will forever be met.
As Miss Iowa, Taylor spends her time traveling the state of Iowa and promoting the Miss Iowa Scholarship Program, Children's Miracle Network, and her personal platform, The St Baldrick's Foundation: SHAVE, SERVE, SHARE. Through her platform, Taylor has raised thousands of dollars for childhood cancer research, even shaving her head at age 17 to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. As Miss Iowa, she has the opportunity to become involved with childhood cancer organizations on a grand scale as well as reaching out to children on a personal level.
