From time to time it is easy to forget about those people who do a lot for us. Without sponsors, the Miss Missouri Scholarship Organization would suffer. On Tuesday, April 6th, Kara Adams and I traveled to Mexico to thank our biggest sponsors and visit our Miss Missouri Little Sisters. I was shocked to see that a simple thank you completely changes people's attitudes about the pageant. Kara and I met our dorm moms, Momma Pat and Miss Jackie for lunch before hitting the town. It was great to catch up with them and see all of the wonderful things they have been up to!
After lunch we went to visit Kayla and Maggie at their schools. Both girls were very excited to see us and are ready for Miss Missouri week.
When we left the schools we were ready to thank our sponsors! First, we went to Aaron's, they donate a refrigerator to us during Miss Missouri week. The employees were shocked to see us in their store so we took a lot of pictures with their mascot, Lucky.
After Aaron's, we hit the Mexico Square. Being there brought back a lot of fun memories from the famous Miss Missouri parades. Here are a few photos from some of our visits.

We knew that we couldn't leave Mexico without visiting Bruce Oliver at Edward Jones. He wanted to "pound it" so we taught him how to "explode"!
The day turned out to be a blast and a huge thank you goes out to all of the Miss Missouri sponsors, we cannot thank you enough for all you do.
