LHS Class of 2012 Grad Courtney Pelot will be watching Saturday night's Miss America broadcast in Atlantic City from the sidelines this year.
Last year she was there on stage, representing her alma mater and the state as Miss Wisconsin. Courtney handed off her crown this summer to the new Miss Wisconsin, McKenna Collins.
In Courtney's year as Miss Wisconsin, she made more than 190 appearances, visited 31 schools and logged about 34,000 miles across Wisconsin promoting her literacy platform. The Manitowoc native said the year "shaped me into the young woman I am today." She plans to return to Manitowoc later this fall to visit special education classrooms and continue her work in literacy.
Remember when you walked the halls of Lincoln, Washington, Wilson and your elementary school? It's back to school time for our future Ships alumni who returned to classes this week for the 2017-18 school year.
Do you have a younger sibling, child or grandchild in school? Please support them and their learning!
