Miss Illinois Visits Blessed Sacrament
You're never too young to take care of your mind, your body, and your soul. That was the message this morning from Miss Illinois to students at Blessed Sacrament School in Springfield.
It's Catholic Schools Week, and school officials said Megan Ervin's personal platform fits in perfectly with this year's theme: Character Counts.
As Miss Illinois, Ervin will spend a year speaking to kids across the state about her "heptathlon of healthy habits."
"The heptathlon includes seven key pillars that embody this holistic overall view of health," Ervin said. "It goes above and beyond physical activity and healthy eating habits. It also encompasses community service, reading and education, spirituality."
Just two weeks ago, Ervin made it to the top 10 at the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas.
