Omaha World-Herald, 24-feb-2011: Even though it was only for a day, Miss America Teresa Scanlan was glad to be home. After being crowned five weeks ago in Las Vegas, Scanlan spent Wednesday visiting friends and family and making appearances in both Scottsbluff and Gering. She started the day with a visit to her brother Adam's school, Community Christian School in Scottsbluff, followed by a luncheon with county officials; then she met with reporters and talked about her experiences. Scanlan then attended a VIP reception at the Scotts Bluff Country Club, and ended her visit with a banquet in her honor at the Gering Civic Center. Despite everything she's seen since her crowning, Scanlan said one of the dreamlike parts was just coming home. More at the Omaha World-Herald website.
