Miss Idaho Is a Top 10 Finalist in Miss America Pageant

Atlantic City, NJ – (670 KBOI News) – For the first time in nearly 50 years, Miss Idaho is a Top 10 finalist in the Miss America pageant.

Nina Forest, a college student from Pocatello, says she’s honored to have represented her home state, but she’s still a little numb about the whole thing.

“I can’t comprehend that it actually happened,” said Nina.  “I haven’t watched the live broadcast yet, so I think when I watch that, it’ll finally sink in.  But really, I felt so overjoyed knowing I was able to do that for Idaho.”

The last Miss Idaho to make the Top 10 finalist was Karen Herd, who was 1st Runner-Up in 1972.

Nina’s social platform is fighting childhood hunger…she says she has come to respect and admire the folks at the Idaho Foodbank in her work to end food insecurity.

Rick Worthington   This is just my own observation…. When I first moved to Idaho, Coach Pete had Boise State rolling. Kellen Moore was piling up the wins and the NFL was getting it’s share of Broncos to the professional ranks. I also rarely saw a car or truck without a Boise State flag or…

For someone who’s never been to Albuquerque, I feel as if I’ve always known quite a bit about it.  Boise State plays the University of New Mexico football team tonight in Albuquerque.  I know exactly where I first heard of the city.  It was in Bugs Bunny cartoons.  More than once, Bugs emerged from digging…
