Beat Texas, and 48 Other States
Congratulations to Lauren Nelson, Miss Oklahoma and now Miss America 2007! Nelson was crowned Miss America Monday night after moving ahead of Miss Texas and the other contestants. Nelson joins five other Oklahomans who hold the title of Miss America. As they sing in the musical, "Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day, I've got a beautiful feeling, everything's going my way." Indeed it is for Nelson. And what a coup for Oklahoma, two years in a row and this year especially during our Centennial Year! Again, congratulations to Nelson and her family.
