Ms. Wheelchair Kansas 2014 Selected at 10th Annual Crowning Ceremony

The 2014 Ms. Wheelchair Kansas was recently crowned during a weekend ceremony held March 16, 2014, at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka. Bridgid Schwilling received her crown after participating in four judging sessions, as well as many other activities, throughout the three-day event held March 14-16. The weekend concluded with a formal crowning, where Bridgid was chosen as the new titleholder and fellow contestants Keara Hockman of Wichita and Jessica Soderlund of Oakley were recognized for their accomplishments.

The crowning ceremony, held on Sunday, was attended by more than 70 family, friends, and community members. The event consisted of platform speeches by each of the three contestants, as well as two on-stage questions. The audience enjoyed a slide show of memories from the weekend; a keynote speech from Pamaline King-Burns of Wichita; a celebration of the 10th anniversary of MWKS; and a farewell from the 2013 MWKS titleholder, Angel Shaver of WaKeeney.
