Penn State Grad Competed for Miss America

TaraWithGrahamWhen Miss America is being shown on TLC, you can tell that it’s jumped the shark. But, still, it’s cool that a Penn State grad represented Virginia in the competition.

Miss Virginia, Tara Wheeler, competed in Las Vegas for Miss America. She is a 24-year old graduate of Penn State’s journalism program.

While at Penn State, Tara was goalie for the Lady Icers AND a member of Air Force ROTC. And… as her title would suggest… she’s really attractive too!

We thought this line from an interview she did with FOX Sports was cool.

My Lady Icers teammates at Penn State were making fun of me when I told them “Hey, I think I’m going to try a pageant,” but half of my Lady Icers team is going to be in Vegas watching the pageant and their families are coming so everyone has been really behind me.

We’ve contacted her to learn a bit more about her Penn State experience. We’ll let you know what we find!

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
