Student Life Lecture Board presents Miss America 2008
Oakland University’s Student Life Lecture Board welcomes Kirsten Haglund, Miss America 2008, on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at noon in the Fireside Lounge. Haglund, a Farmington Hills native, was crowned Miss American in January. Haglund’s new title has taken her around the world and she comes to Oakland University to share her story.
This will be Haglund’s second visit to campus. Haglund is studying for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in musical theatre from the University of Cincinnati in the hopes of becoming a Broadway performer. In June, Haglund performed at OU’s Meadow Brook Hall with Miss America 1955 Lee Meriwether during the theatre’s run of “Sister Amnesia’s Country Western Nunsense Jamboree.”
Haglund is traveling around the world to raise awareness about eating disorders and acting as the National Goodwill Ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network.
Haglund’s appearance is sponsored by the Student Life Lecture Board. The event is free and no tickets are required. For more information, call the Center for Student Activities at (248) 370-2400 or visit the Center for Student Activities Web site.
