On April 18-19, I volunteered to highlight the volunteer activities of Miss Oklahoma and Miss Oklahoma's Outstanding Teen participants during their #MissAmericaServes project with the American Red Cross. On day one, they packed care packages for the attendees of the 20th anniversary ceremony of the Oklahoma City bombing and listened to first-hand accounts from survivors and responders. On day two, the queens handed out the care packages to the memorial ceremony attendees. By taking a little time out of my weekend, I learned a true meaning of the term "Oklahoma Standard" and gained a deeper appreciation for what these young ladies stand for as representatives of the Miss America Organization.
