Hello Southwest Family,

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been three months since I have started as Miss Southwest Michigan Teen! The time really does fly when you are having a blast! I’ve had so much fun helping at events, doing parades and spending time with my sister representatives. Everyone has been so kind and helpful and I can’t wait to help everyone out in return.

I have been having a great time this fall, starting up school and marching band again. I have always enjoyed it and I had even more fun with my college courses. One of my favorite classes has been economics. My classmates and I are having a grand time, hosting auctions and making our own businesses to sell things to each other. I get to be the post office, which is so much fun! It is something that is new to me and I absolutely love it!

I’ve made a lot of new memories this fall as well. My absolute favorite was at the Apple Festival Parade in Niles. It had been raining that morning and Halie, Jenna, London and I weren’t sure if it was going to clear up to so that we could let the tops down on our cars. Thankfully, God let the sun come out and made the clouds disappear! There wasn’t a single drop of rain for the rest of the day. I was able to spend more time with my sister representatives, and it made me so happy!

In these past three months, I’ve had the privilege of attending our monthly Goodwill Tours. I have a wonderful time on them! I have met many wonderful people and heard so many wonderful stories. I have even seen a few friends of mine while on tour! Helping out our elderly makes me smile and I can’t wait to go on more tours in the future!

These past months, I have also had the pleasure of promoting my platform of Childhood Leukemia. I am extremely excited to say that I have been working on my speech about it and I can’t wait until I get out into the community to present it! I hope I can bring more awareness to our community!

Now I wish everyone a very lovely Christmas that is filled with love and Christ!

With love,
Elizabeth Jorgensen
