VIDEO: Miss America Visits South JerseyPosted:
EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - Students in Egg Harbor Township got a visit from Miss America, Betty Cantrell.
Miss America visited two Egg Harbor Township schools. The students were happy to see her and wanted to take photos with her. Her main purpose for being there was to talk about her platform - Healthy Children, Strong America.
"We teach them about healthy living, their lifestyles, so she just came in and confirmed all the things we teach here at miller school," said Latifah Potter, Principal, Dr. Joyanne D. Miller Elementary School. "And all of our students, they were extremely excited, and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them. So we're very happy, very pleased, and thankful, that out of all of the schools in the country, she chose our school to visit."
As part of her year-long reign, Miss America travels all over the country speaking on her platform, among many other issues, but she always seems to makes it a point to get back here to South Jersey.
