January 14th, 2012

The nation’s newest Miss America is a 23-year-old Wisconsin brunette who had long conversations with her family mulling whether or not to make her father’s jail time for mail fraud the heart of her campaign in the beauty pageant.

While her competitors pushed platforms including promoting the health benefits of milk and protecting the environment, Laura Kaeppeler (KEP’-ler) said she wants children of incarcerated adults to feel less alone, to have mentoring and as much of a relationship with their parents as possible.

“There are many of you out there — and I was one of them — but it doesn’t have to define you,” Kaeppeler told The Associated Press after winning the crown and $50,000 scholarship on Saturday night.

To win, she said beauty queens and politicians should remember they represent all Americans, sang an opera song and strutted in a white bikini and black evening gown.

Her looks, smarts and personal vocation impressed a panel of seven celebrity judges enough to give her the next year with the title.

“What happened with my father is not what my year is going to be focused on,” she said. “It’s going to be focused on looking forward and moving to the future because that’s what my family has done and that’s what I’ll encourage others to do, as well.”

Kaeppeler estimated that there are more than 2 million children with a parent in jail.

Kaeppeler’s father, Jeff Kaeppeler, told the AP he served 18 months in federal prison for mail fraud, a sentence his daughter said started as she was graduating high school and entering college.

Jeff Kaeppeler said when his daughter approached the family about making the personal topic her chosen platform, they supported it even though they knew it would be discussed publicly.

“It taught us that God can turn anything into good if you let him,” he said. “Laura is totally on board with that idea. She let that drive her and inspire her this past year to get ready for this.

“We’ve seen a miracle,” he said while waiting backstage for a news conference in which his daughter called him her “best friend” and briefly took pictures with him onstage.

“I love you,” he whispered to her as dozens of cameras snapped photos.

Miss Oklahoma Betty Thompson came in second, while Miss New York Kaitlyn Monte placed third.

Kaeppler introduced herself to pageant viewers by referencing her home state’s Green Bay Packers, the NFL’s defending Super Bowl champions.

“If you’re watching, Aaron Rodgers, call me,” she said, referring to the football team’s superstar quarterback.

She was good enough during preliminary competitions to be chosen as one of 15 semifinalists who moved on to compete in the pageant’s finale. Her bid lasted through swimsuit, evening wear, talent and interview competitions that saw cuts after each round.

She was asked minutes before being crowned whether Miss America should declare her politics.

“Miss America represents everyone, so I think the message to political candidates is that they represent everyone as well,” she said. “And so in these economic times, we need to be looking forward to what America needs, and I think Miss America needs to represent all.”

Laura Kaeppeler of Kenosha, Miss Southern Wisconsin, waves to the crowd after being crowned as Miss Wisconsin 2011 during the scholarship pageant at the Alberta Kimball Auditorium on Oshkosh on Saturday night.

10:42 PM, Jun. 18, 2011

Kimberly Sawyer traded her softball helmet for the Miss Wisconsin 2010 crown. On Saturday night, the Door County native walked across the Alberta Kimball Auditorium stage for one last time before crowning Laura Kaeppeler as Miss Wisconsin 2011.

Kaeppeler, of Kenosha, who was Miss Southern Wisconsin, won a $10,000 college scholarship and will represent the state at the 2012 Miss America Scholarship Pageant.

Twenty-one local pageant winners competed in three rounds of the 2011 Miss Wisconsin Scholarship Pageant, which started Wednesday.

Kaeppeler has a bachelor’s degree in music from Carthage College. She sang a classical aria in the talent competition. Her platform was mentoring children whose parents are in jail. When Kaeppeler was 17, one of her parents was jailed, an experience she called “the most wounding period in my life. I can honestly say I understand the difficulties”

Miss Seven Rivers, Raenna Johnson of Holmen, was the first runner-up. She wins a $2,000 scholarship.

Miss Fox River Valley, Desiree Geffers of Oshkosh, was second runner-up and won a $1,000 scholarship.

Miss Madison Capital City, Brittany Lee Wittnabel of Beloit, was third runner-up and won an $800 scholarship.

Miss La Crosse Oktoberfest, Elizabeth Kramer of Holmen, was fourth runner-up and won a $600 scholarship.

Neither Miss Green Bay Area, Brianne Lund of Berlin, nor Miss Door County, Emily Larsen of Sister Bay, were among the final 10 contestants.

Rounding out the top 10 were:  Miss St. Francis, Tonya Popowski of Cudahy; Miss Kenosha, Ashley Dennis; Miss Burlington Area Chocolate Festival, Mary O’Connell of Bristol; Miss Wisconsin Central, Katie Williams of Wisconsin Rapids; Miss Milwaukee, Brittany Lyn Roskom of Slinger; and Miss Oshkosh, VeiJzahn Knight.

Kaeppeler also won a scholarship for evening wear. Dennis won the Spirit of Miss America Award. Roskom won the People’s Choice Award.

Early preliminary winners were Johnson and Kaeppeler in the talent competition and Wittnebel and Geffers for physical fitness and swimwear.

Miss Seven Rivers, Raeanna Johnson of Holmen, was first runner-up.

Miss Fox River Valley, Desire Geffers of Oshkosh, was second-runner up.

Miss Madison Capital City, Brittany Lee Wittnabel of Beloit, was third runner-up.

When Kaeppeler was 17, one of her parents was jailed, an experience she called “the most wounding period in my life.”

Carthage College graduate; BA in music, vocal performance Platform: Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents Talent: Opera, classical aria, “Il Bacio” Quotable: “Children of incarcerated parents are an invisible population. There is no one agency that is responsible for their welfare. … At that age of 17, I was the child of an incarcerated parent. … While this experience was the most wounding period in my life, I can honestly say I understand the difficulties … My message of perseverance has inspired others …”
