The next few weeks will be very busy for Creighton University student Alyssa Howell. She will be leaving next week for Atlantic City to compete as Miss Nebraska in the Miss America competition. Before that she will take part in a benefit Sunday at Champions Run Golf Course in Omaha to raise money for the Miss Nebraska Scholarship Fund. Howell says participants really benefit from these scholarships.
Howell says, “I got $15,000 for school in those two year’s I’ve competed. Those scholarships are definitely well used.”
Howell isn’t a Nebraska native but moved here to attend Creighton University in Omaha. She says she has lived all over including Iowa and Virginia because her father was a Marine.
Howell and several other Nebraska pageant winners will perform on Sunday at the fundraiser. The event starts at 4 pm.
