The Miss America Pageant is Sunday and one of the contestants has tattoos! She is Miss Kansas, Theresa Vail. She's also an avid bow hunter and a sergeant in the Kansas National Guard. She's only the second member of the military to compete, and the FIRST to ever show her tattoos. We think she's WAY cool!
We LOVE Theresa's quote: "Why am I choosing to bear my tattoos?" she writes. It's all about "empowering women to OVERCOME stereotypes and break barriers. What a hypocrite I would be if I covered the ink. With my platform, how could I tell other women to be fearless and be true to themselves if I can’t do the same?"
So, what do you think? Will you be supporting Theresa in the pageant? Please post your comments below--we'd LOVE to hear them!

It’s so great to be back home in Missouri! I’m a Missouri girl, born and bred. I grew up on a cattle farm, and went to school at Missouri State University. (Back then, we called it SMS). I have two fur-babies. Tink is my Great Dane, and Elwood is my Doberman. I’m the youngest in a large farm family, and my mom still refers to me as her “baby”. Ha! I enjoy riding my bike on all the beautiful greenways in Springfield. The Katy Trail rocks! My dogs love Cruse Dog Park! I love the friendly folks of southwest Missouri. There are no better people. I hope you’ll join me every weekday morning. Thank you for listening!
After attending Evangel University, I have definitely found a home here in SW Missouri. My wife is a very gifted mental health therapist, and I like to think of myself as her most gifted client. We were married on Christmas Eve, 2011, and with every day that goes by, I realize just how amazing a Christmas gift she truly was. We do not have any kids (yet) but we do have a tiny little mutt named, Sophie, who you’ll probably stumble upon if you ever walk the path around the lake at Nathaniel Green Park. Most weekends you’ll find us either grocery shopping, golfing or at our church. And of course, every weekday morning, I hope you’ll join Cheryl and I for a friendly wake up call, on 105.9 KGBX.
