Miss America held its second night of preliminaries in Atlantic City last week. Almost all the contestants came onstage wearing dazzling costumes to showcase their singing, dancing, and musical talents for the talent competition; but there was one exception in the name of Kelley Johnson.
Miss Colorado Kelly decided to deliver a unique monologue about her experience as a nurse with an elderly Alzheimer’s patient.
When she stepped onstage in her nurse’s scrubs, people were probably stunned. But when she finished, the results are totally mind-blowing and heart-moving. Regardless she wins the ultimate titles, in my eyes, Kelly has already won.
Kelly is a graduate of Grand View University where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing in 2015. She graduated as valedictorian of her nursing class and she now works as a registered nurse.
