True Food Kitchen Chef Matthew Tobin and UCI Soccer Team Join Forces with the Junior League Of Orange County The Junior League of Orange County, Calif., (JLOCC) is holding a Kids in the Kitchen event 8:30 - 11:30 a.m., Friday, May18, to teach good nutrition and healthy habits to close to 100 5th grade students at the Hazard Elementary School, 4218 Hazard Ave., Santa Ana. Kids in the Kitchen Chair Renee Polk and 25 JLOCC committee members have worked with school principal Nanci Cole to set up the morning’s plans. Four to six stations will offer activities that range from 15 minutes to 20 minutes each for approximately 15 to 20 kids per group. Topics will include nutrition, portion control, and physical fitness. True Food Kitchen Chef Matthew Tobin will teach the basics of good nutrition and lead an interactive game from 8:30 - 9: 25 a.m. At the smallgroup stations, the youngsters will make Scooter Snacks, after-school treats that are nutritious and fun (http://www. tasteofhome.com/Recipes/ScooterSnacks) and focus on portion control (details available at webmd.com/diet/ printable/portion-control-size-guide and choosemyplate.gov/downloads/ mini_poster_English_final.pdf) . The UCI Women’s Soccer team will participate in outdoor activities starting at 9:35 a.m., and continuing until 11:30. In addition, representatives of the

United Studios of Self Defense will demonstrate Martial Arts & Self Defense. Sponsors for the event include TK Burger, Target, Trader Joes, True Food Kitchen and the California Avocado Commission. The Junior Leagues’ Kids in the Kitchen is an association-wide initiative of The Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) designed to help communities address the urgent issues surrounding childhood obesity and poor nutrition. The program was launched in 2006 by Junior Leagues in over 225 communities. By joining together to make an impact on the future health of our youth, Junior Leagues are committed to empowering today’s children to make choices that help them lead healthy lives. The initiative illustrates the power of voluntarism to address community problems on both the grassroots and international levels. Key to the impact of the initiative is the Kids in the Kitchen website, which includes fitness and nutrition tips from Kids in the Kitchen program partners such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), American Dietetic Association (ADA), Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and many more. The Kids in the Kitchen website also includes

a virtual recipe collection from celebrity chefs, local restaurateurs, celebrity moms and nutrition experts, designed to teach young children healthy eating habits at an early age. These recipes are available in electronic and downloadable formats on the website, http:// kidsinthekitchen.ajli.org. The Junior League of Orange County, California, Inc., is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. JLOCC has contributed to Orange County by helping found organizations such as Orangewood Children’s Home and the Volunteer Center of Orange County. As a solely educational and charitable organization, the JLOCC’s trained volunteers actively support the community through collaboration with organizations that promote and support the health, safety and education of women and children. A 501(c)(3) organization, the JLOCC reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins. Originally founded in 1956 as the Newport Harbor Service League, the JLOCC is a member organization of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. To learn more about

SOCALPAPA artists return to the Upper Newport Bay for their Biennial Fine Arts Juried Event and Display Sale. The two-part celebration of the Back Bay and its environs will feature a juried plein air art competition and a weekend display sale. Paintings on display will showcase the beauty and natural heritage of the area. The local artists’ association will submit over sixty original paintings for jury review and awards at the Artists’ Reception on Friday, July 20th, 2012 , with the art to be exhibited for sale that evening. Nationally respected artist, Scott W. Prior, will be the juror. Mr. Prior has juried competitions and invitational events across the country. Several hundred additional original paintings will be exhibited at the art show and sale, which takes place from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, July 21st and 22nd. SOCALPAPA Artists will display original plein air paintings of

the bay and other local scenes, with a portion of the sales’ proceeds to benefit the Newport Bay Naturalists & Friends, a charitable organization. New this year, free painting classes for kids ages 7 – 12 will be offered. The classes will be taught by Roy Gould, popular local artist and frequent instructor at Yosemite National Park. Students will be able to take home a completed painting at the end of class. Due to limited supplies and space, students are required to sign up for the classes. Sign-ups will be taken starting May 1st, 2012 inside the Muth Interpretive Center office. The event takes place at the OC

Parks Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center located at 2301 University Drive, Newport Beach.

PACIFIC SYMPHONY ASKS AGAIN, “OC CAN YOU PLAY WITH US?” Last season, Pacific Symphony asked “OC Can You Play With Us?” and got a resounding and positive response from community musicians across Orange County. This year, back by popular demand, the Symphony is offering four sessions over two nights for adult amateur musicians (ages 22 and older) to perform alongside the orchestra, under the direction of Music Director Carl St.Clair. Taking place Monday, April 30, and Tuesday, May 1, at 7 p.m., this year’s event offers twice the number of spots—bringing the number of musicians to 200—for a unique opportunity to rehearse and perform selections from Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet” on the stage of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Although the program is considered full, the Symphony is pulling from a waiting list up until the event dates. Friends, fans and interested observers are invited to attend this workshopstyle event for free (seating is general admission: reserve tickets online). Find music tips and interact with the musicians on the OC Can You Play With Us? Facebook page. Watch a video and find out more on our website. For more information, contact Alicia Frye at (714) 876-2386 or afrye@pacificsymphony. org for more information. Registration opened on Feb. 1, and

participants were chosen on a firstcome first-served basis with no audition required. They have now received their music in preparation for the performance of selections from Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet,” including “Montagues and Capulets,” “Minuet,” “Balcony Scene” and “Tybalt’s Death.” Unique this year, participants may attend an optional rehearsal led by conductor Sharon Lavery and sectionals led by Symphony musicians Ian McKinnell (strings), Cindy Ellis (woodwinds) and David Stetson (brass) on April 14. The night of the performance, participants are invited to attend a private reception with the musicians. Also new this year, “OC Can You Play With Us?” has a Facebook page, where participants may ask questions, read music tips and interact with Symphony musicians. Find it at http://www. facebook.com/OCCanYouPlayWithUs? “Last year was great…but this year is going to be even better as we get to have an additional rehearsal practice and a sectional!” says past participant Matt Wood, president of the Laguna Concert Band. “Bravo Pacific Symphony! Thanks for the program!” “OC Can You Play With Us?” offers a unique opportunity for amateur musicians to not only play with the professionals, but to perform under the direction of Maestro St.Clair and to

gain the experience of playing in one of the most acoustically and architecturally advanced halls in the world,” says Alicia Frye, community arts participation associate. One new participant this year, Dennis McNutt, playing the bass, grew up in West Africa without electricity or any modern conveniences. His love of music grew from the few classical records his family played on a wind-up phonograph, and one time he heard a bass performed in an unusual manner in a church in Ghana. He has dreamed of playing the bass ever since, and after retirement he finally found a teacher. He is now preparing to perform onstage with not only the Symphony but his daughter and

son-in-law, who are also participating. “Learning a musical instrument surely would have been easier as a youth, but as a mature adult I have the passion and focused determination to improve each year. This also provides daily rigorous exercise for my brain, as it tries to master something new, difficult and wonderful,” says McNutt. He adds, “Having the opportunity to play with world-class musicians is a bit like a wannabe football player being invited to the Super Bowl, except no one will get hurt!” “OC Can You Play With Us? is made possible by support from MetLife, the James Irvine Foundation and Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Patroness Tea by the Sea Raises Funds for Adoption Guild The Adoption Guild of Southern Orange County celebrated its 51st Annual Patroness Tea by the Sea with approximately 200 guests at the beautiful, newly remodeled Lido Isle Yacht Club/Community Clubhouse. The annual event supports Holy Family Services Adoption & Foster Care Agency. Gross proceeds of approximately $20,000 were raised benefiting potential adoptive and foster children located throughout southern California. Adoption Guild President Mindy Pfenning welcomed everyone then Mrs. Janis Rosebrook, Holy Family Services Chairman of the Board, introduced Parents Eva and Jessee, Grandmother Reyna, and their three adopted children, Priscilla, Angel, and Jessica. New Father Jessee shared his inspirational experience with the adoption process and Holy Family Services. In the end, a loving family was created. Tea by the Sea featured shopping by the Sea with boutiques such as The Passionate Collector, The Tattered Daisy, One Hope Wines, The Woman’s Door, Love Reusable Bags, Miche Bags, and William Harold Jewelers. Silent Auction items included a hair makeover by new hot salon, Platino, a week in Mammoth, a Jo Malone gift basket, dinner for two at Anqi by Crustacean, hair makeover by Vogue Salon, Classic Kids Studio Sitting, and a Round of golf for four. Lucky winners were: Kelly Knight, Bobbie Daniel, Janie Merkle, Debbie Sampson, Pam Fossler, Terri Rhodes, and Lynn Barr. The Tea Menu was created by Executive Chef Bruce Pressey and featured endive spears with roasted beets and chevre, smoked salmon parcels with jicama, filet of beef rolled with herb cheese and red onion pickle, savory tart with zucchini, mushroom, & fresh thyme, Mini Aidell’s sausages in brioche rolls with Dijon and cranberry mustards, pinwheel and triangle sandwiches of curried chicken and watercress bacon. Desserts featured were mini thumbprint scones with clotted cream, Earl Grey flavored Madeleines, chocolate dipped ginger shortbread, lavender lemon biscotti, sour cherry truffles, and a mountain of candied citrus peel. Major sponsors to the Tea were: Pam Fossler, Pam Selber, Herb Cook, and an anonymous donor. Wine was provided by Hi-Time Wine Cellars. “Floral Creations by Enzo” designed the beautiful blue and white hydrangeas and spring flower centerpieces. Spotted in the audience were Tennis Great Roy and Joy Emerson, Janel Holland, Maria Zucht, Geri Briggs, Judy Bergman, Patricia Houston, Patti Lehman, Pam Fossler, and Shan Womack. Chaired by Mary Eadington and Jeannette Perry, the Tea committee included members Linda Torr, Jeannie Mullin, Katie Richardson Fran Bingham, Pam Fossler, Joanne Vogelsang, Janie Merkle, Bettie Shepard, Jane Flynn, Marily Wilson, Susan Knox, Nancy Harman, and Ursula Faschnie. For over fifty years, the Adoption Guild of Southern Orange County has supported Holy Family Services Adoption & Foster Care Agency. With the hope of giving every child an opportunity to have a loving family, dedicated Adoption Guild volunteers work each year to present two major fund-raising events: the Patroness Tea and Roy Emerson Adoption Guild Tennis Classic in May. All proceeds benefit Holy Family Services. Since 1961, Adoption Guild has generated over $4.2 million in funding, contributing to approximately 3000 adoptions.

Cinco De Mayo Drink Recipes By Angel Vee Are you having or going to a Cinco de Mayo party? A Cinco de Mayo party is very fun, lively, and has the best Mexican dishes and drinks. What are the most popular Cinco de Mayo drinks people serve at their parties? Most people who have a Cinco de Mayo party usually serve a nice Margarita, Tequila cocktail, Mexican mudslide, some flavored Sangria, or the most popular Cinco de Mayo drink which is a frozen Horchata to their company. The Horchata drink is very refreshing, easy to make, and will definitely impress your company. What is a Horchata drink? This refreshing Mexican drink is made with White rice, cinnamon, a touch of vanilla, some almonds, and of course sugar. I know this drink may sound a little weird because of the rice, but once you puree the rice into the mixture you will not feel like your eating or drinking rice. The texture is very smooth, creamy, and full of protein. This is the only Mexican drink I know how to make only, because I have had it quite a few times already. So if you are looking for an easy Cinco de Mayo drink to serve to your company or children I would go with this one. What I like about making this froPage 14

zen Horchata drink is you can get very creative with it. This drink can be served plain, with chocolate, with liquor, frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, or you can use the Dole frozen fruit mixture. If you are having a small party, make a tray up with using the different flavors allowing your friends and family to experiment on which one they prefer. Items needed to make a good frozen Horchata drink for Cinco de Mayo 1 ¼ Cup of Uncooked White riceThis will be enough for a family of five 3 Sticks of cinnamon- If you love the taste of cinnamon you may add a touch more. If your not too crazy about the taste of cinnamon then go with two 1 ½ or 2 sticks. 1/3 Cup of Blue Diamond slivered almonds- If you can’t find these in your grocery store like Pathmark you can find them at either Kroger, or Wegmans. You can also shop online by putting slivered almonds into the Google search box. 32 ounces of cold water 2 Tablespoons of sugar ½ Teaspoon of vanilla Frozen fruits, or Mexican chocolate can be added if desired. If you do decide you want to make a chocolate Horchata drink and you cant find

The Newport News

Mexican chocolate you can substitute it by using a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate, ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon with a touch of almond extract. The only Mexican chocolate I know of is called Ibarra. This would be placed into the rice mixture along with the almonds. How to make a Horchata drink for Cinco de Mayo First you need to grind up the rice. Place the rice into a blender on medium speed. Let this mix for a few minutes until the rice is finely chopped up. The rice should now look like White dust. Then grab a bowl and put your cinnamon and almonds into it. Mix the almonds and cinnamon up together. Pour the boiling water over the almonds and the cinnamon mix this up for a minute. Add the rice. Now let this sit for 5-8 hours. If you want you can allow this to sit over night. The longer it sits the better the flavor. Now you have to puree your rice mixture and strain it by using a cheesecloth. After you strained the rice you can now add your sugar, and vanilla. Mix this up for a few minutes.

Serve this cold with your cinnamon sticks or any other fancy garnishes for drinks like a lime, lemon etc. Other drinks you can whip up for Cinco de Mayo are a Cranberry Mojito, Fiesta tea spritzer, Mexican hot chocolate, 3 fruit sangria, smoothies, Cinco de Mayo drink, lemon lime slush, Apple Margerita, Chilada, Tequila Cosmo, or some Mexican eggnog. I don’t know how to make these drinks I just know the names of them. You can put each of these drink names on Google and see what comes up.

History of Cinco De Mayo: A Battle Won, War Lost Cinco De Mayo Celebrated More Widely in U.S. Than in Mexico By Joe Copymachine In the United States, Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a reason to revel. Bars across the U.S. host celebrations with Corona beer and Mexico-themed decorations. College students throw raucous parties where they break open red, white and green colored pinatas. More than 150 U.S. cities hold official celebrations. Much of the nation makes a point to make merry on Cinco de Mayo, and it’s all in the name of Mexico. But in Mexico, people don’t get so excited. Actually, most of the country doesn’t even recognize the holiday, possibly because Mexicans are more familiar with the history of Cinco de Mayo than Americans are. The event notes a battle won, but a war lost. The history of Cinco de Mayo begins on May 5, 1862, when a Mexican army led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin defeated a well-armed French militia in the Battle of Puebla. The French forces had outnumbered the Mexicans two-to-one, and the French were known for having a strong military. The two forces met in the Mexican state of Puebla, an area

that now celebrates Cinco de Mayo far more than the rest of Mexico. While the Battle of Puebla was a significant feat for the Mexican army, it only delayed the advancing French, who went on to occupy Mexico in 1863. The French remained in control of Mexico until they withdrew in 1866 and 1867 under pressure from the United States. So although the history of Cinco de Mayo is rooted in an impressive victory for the Mexicans, the holiday is also a reminder of a war the country eventually lost. Thus Mexico doesn’t recognize Cinco de Mayo as a federal holiday, and many Mexicans don’t see much reason to celebrate. The celebration has actually become a largely U.S.-celebrated holiday — a

day for a country that is 15 percent Hispanic to celebrate the culture of its neighbor to the South. Cinco de Mayo first gained popularity in the U.S. during the 1950s and 1960s as the United States sought to develop a better relationship with Mexico. Many Chicano activists in the 1960s used the holiday to build pride among Mexican-Americans.

Many Americans inaccurately believe Cinco de Mayo to be a celebration of the independence of Mexico. From my experience, most American celebrants don’t seem too concerned about the history of Cinco de Mayo, and many repeat this myth unchallenged. Actually, Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16.

Host a Chic Cinco de Mayo Soiree The writer Nancie Carmody once said, “I am thankful for the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.” Entertaining for loved ones can be an enjoyable affair but also one that requires a lot of work. This Cinco de Mayo, Madria Sangria, along with entertaining expert Jillian Harris, are looking to help make those duties a bit more effortless. Tips for Easy Entertaining Jillian Harris and Madria Sangria have developed the following tips that will be sure to help anyone with their hosting duties not only on Cinco de Mayo but year-round. Sangria Soiree: When hosting a Cinco de Mayo party, serve a delicious, popular and effortless readymade drink, such as Madria Sangria. For a refreshing twist, make frozen fruit cubes in place of ice beforehand to simply drop in to your drink for a cooled down, mouth-watering beverage. ¡Viva Mexico! Fiesta: Host a fiesta that will have your friends wanting to hop on the next flight to Mexico. Set your table with festive orange plates and pink napkins and decorate the room with papier-mâché flowers and colorful tea lights to enhance the mood.

BYOF(ood): Instead of doing all the cooking, have a tapas-style potluck dinner. Encourage each guest to bring a unique small plate of their choice such as Sweet and Salty Bites or Spicy Shrimp. This not only makes your hosting tasks easier, but also allows your guests to show off their culinary skills. DIY Drinks: To continue allowing your guests to show off their skills, try a “make-your-own” sangria bar to wet their palettes. Prepare an assortment of exotic fruits such as mangos and passion fruit alongside pitchers 20 to 30 paper thin slices of of pre-made Madria Sangria so your guests can add a fun twist to their jamón or prosciutto Cut melon into bite size pieces. drinks.

PHYSICIAN REFERRAL COMPANY SUPPORTS PEOPLE IN TRANSITION

Gary Calvaneso, Mary Baker, Sandra McElwee, Miriam Kang, Linda Matulis

When your primary care physician tells you that you need to see a specialist, most patients assume their doctor will refer them to a quality physician. After all, anyone who is going to treat you should be board-certified, well versed in the latest techniques and have an impressive record of successes with other patients; right? Well it may come as a surprise that the referral system doesn’t actually work that way. Most people assume their primary care doctor has a rolodex of top notch specialists to pass along as needed. In today’s fast paced world, primary care physicians simply don’t have the time to go out, research and meet with other specialists. With specialists operating margins falling over the past decade and health care reforms putting pressure on their bottom line, quality specialists have a need to do a better job educating referring doctors and patients about their expertise. That’s where 2 local residents, Gary Calvaneso and Sandra McElwee who met through Saddleback Church, decided there was an opportunity to work with quality specialists and educate referring primary care physicians about their skills. In early 2011, they formed a referral marketing company called The Referral Specialists (www.TheReferralSpecialists.com).

Page 16

The Newport News

The Referral Specialists provide practice representatives and referral marketing services to specialty physicians. Practice representatives are experienced healthcare professionals who call on primary care physicians and complementary specialists to educate them about their specialist client’s expertise. Since starting their business, their specialty physician clients have experienced positive gains as a direct result of their services. Typically these specialists triple or quadruple the number of referring physicians who refer to them and increase their bottom line. In fact, the Referral Specialists business caught the attention of the Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money magazine where they were mentioned by name. “Our business connects quality specialists with PCP’s (Primary Care Physicians) through referral marketing, said Gary Calvaneso, Managing Partner. Educating the medical community not only benefits everyone in the medical market but also produces jobs which is something that our community really needs”. Aside from achieving positive results for their clients, what makes The Referral Specialists unique is their dedication to helping those that are unemployed and need help. For Calvaneso, it is something he takes to heart.

Nearly every Monday for the past 6 years, Calvaneso has been a volunteer at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, listening to and coaching unemployed people with a smile and an offer of hope. “For our practice reps, we only consider candidates that are unemployed” said Calvaneso. “We are not interested in recruiting people that already have a job and an income. We prefer to support those that do not. It is our way of giving back to the community by helping those in need which is a principle of our faith.” “You would be surprised at the high level of unemployed talent there is out there” said Sandra McElwee, Managing Partner. “One of our practice reps is a senior woman with over 25 years of pharmaceutical sales experience calling on physicians’ offices. She was out of work for over 2 years before joining up with us and has done a great job for our clients”. Not only do the Referral Specialists focus on working with unemployed candidates, but they also do the same for suppliers. “We wanted to apply our faith based principles of helping those in need to all aspects of our business, said Calvaneso”. “Even the caterer we use is trying to generate income through a home based business. What employers need to understand is that being unemployed has nothing to do with talent or quality. We carefully screen our suppliers, looking for skill and quality first. The doctors all rave about her food and she now gets additional business from them”. “We have a stay-at-home mom who makes some of the best toffee you’ll ever taste, right out of her home kitchen. Here again, our clients rave about her toffee and have provided her additional business” said Calvaneso. For his volunteerism in supporting people in transition in 2011, Calvaneso received the Orange County Spirit of Volunteerism Award as part of the leadership team managing Saddlebacks Career Coaching and Counseling program. If you are a physician with a specialty medical practice and are interested in a free consultation to learn more about how The Referral Specialists can help increase referrals from other physicians, visit their website at www. TheReferralSpecialists.com , call them 949-433-1702 or e-mail them at info@get-referred.com.

Top Five Tips for Growing Beautiful Roses From June to Sept., roses add a special flourish to yards, gardens and public parks throughout the U.S. But for many gardeners, tending roses may seem intimidating. With 23 years of experience, Jamie Shiffer, head gardener at Hershey Gardens in Hershey, Pa., knows a thing or two about cultivating a beautiful rose, in all of its varieties. Here are Shiffer’s top five rose gardening tips for gardeners of all experience levels: Plant and fertilize early. Consider planting new rose bushes in early spring. “Both new and existing rose plantings will need to be fertilized at this time,” says Shiffer. He recommends applying a slow-release fertilizer surrounding the base, such as the GreenView with GreenSmart Rose Food, which is formulated with essential macro and micro nutrients that provide extended feeding for up to 12 weeks. Research reveals it helps to produce superior plant growth, improve plant health and vigor, and increase buds, blooms and plant yield. After fertilizing, thoroughly water your roses. If desired, you can apply two inches of mulch around the plant. Avoid over watering. “You should

water roses sparingly throughout the very hot season,” recommends Shiffer. “The biggest mistake people make when watering is to water from overhead with a hose, instead of at ground level,” says Shiffer. Watering from above, Shiffer explains, can cause black spots to appear on the petals and throughout the day. As the heat intensifies, the water on the petals promotes fungal growth. To avoid this, water at ground level first thing in the morning. Prevent black spot. While good watering techniques can prevent fungal growth, for some gardeners, a humid environment can still lead to the same problem. “Treat black spot using a fungicide spray application on the plants every two weeks,” says Shiffer. Prune for increased plant growth. To encourage rejuvenation and growth from your rose bushes, be sure to deadhead through Sept. Count from the blossom down to the fifth leaf and make an angled cut. Maintain throughout each season. Regardless of variety, roses require year round maintenance. Use this calendar as a guide to care for your rose bushes: March – Thin out the plantings;

cut them back to 8 or 12 inches in length. April – Beginning in late April or early May, fertilize roses with a slow-release fertilizer that will last for 3 months, such as GreenView with GreenSmart Rose Food. May to Oct. – Use spray application on roses every two weeks. From June to Sept., deadhead your plantings, so they will push new growth. S e p t . – Re mo v e rose petals without cutting the bulb off completely. Nov. – Cut all roses back for the winter to 32 inches in height. For novice gardeners, Shiffer recommends starting with star roses or knockout roses, as they are among the most disease and insect resistant. “They come in many different colors and produce blooms throughout the year,” says Shiffer.

State and regional titleholders from across the United States competed in five categories including interview, sportswear, fashion wear, evening gown and on-stage question. 2012 Ms. America® Nicole Rash’s walk across the stage to accept the crown marked her first steps on a journey that will take her from spotlight to spotlight representing the American woman 26 years of age and up who are single, divorced or married. Rash, a Saint Louis, Missouri transplant, is originally from the small town of Plymouth, Indiana. She was Miss Indiana 2007, and received first runner-up in the Miss America Pageant in 2008. She is currently employed as a model, actress, and corporate spokesperson, and will complete her bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Ball State University in May. Rash is also a philanthropist and is especially passionate about her platform of service “Breath Easy - Keeping our Youth Smoke and Tobacco Free.” After losing 3 of her grandparents to smoking related illness, her cause is close to her heart and she has spoken to over 25,000 students so far about staying smoke free. She has her motorcycle license and has owned 3 motorcycles, she grew up on a farm in rural Indiana where they raise cows, and she is a Presidential Scholarship Winner and will graduate with an overall 3.85 GPA. As Ms. America® 2012, Rash is honored to represent an organization that enriches the lives of women across the country and is passionate about continuing to give back to others through philanthropic endeavors and being the inspiration that helps others achieve their dreams.
