Junkies are big fans of "genuine"...  And Diana Sweeney's work with the Special Olympics leads us to believe she's got 'genuine' all over her! :)

From the Polar Plunge Profile of Diana - as she prepared to take the frigid jump into the icy waters of Lake Tahoe to benefit Special Olympics - Diana says,

"The Special Olympics is an extremely important program to me. I have worked with special needs students from a very young age, and I couldn’t imagine my life without my involvement with the Special Olympics. I look forward to every single event, and I cannot wait to see all of my friends and spend time with the best people I know."

In Atlantic City, Diana was named a finalist for the new S.T.E.M. scholarship - given to Miss America contestants who are pursing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  Diana's goal is to become a Math Professor - and let me just say... If Diana were my math professor in college, she would've smelled a whole lot better than the guy I had to learn from!  LOL!  It's a wonder I made it through that class!

All the best to Diana as she continues her super special work with Special Olympics and pursues her career :)

Now - Regarding this year's Miss Nevada --- There are 3 former Miss Nevada Outstanding Teens competing this year ('08, '11 and '12) - But that doesn't mean one of them will take it - Let's just say, this weekend's pageant is one to watch!
