Heather Wells is a 23-year-old graduate of Kent State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She is currently continuing her education at KSU, working toward a Master’s Degree in Nutrition. She hopes to pursue a career in media working as a health correspondent.
During her undergraduate studies, Heather was a member of the Undergraduate Student Government working on the Allocations Committee, a news anchor for TV2-KSU news and student choreographer for the Student Dance Festival.
Heather has been dancing since the age of three and was a competitive dancer for 13 years. She has performed in various locations across the country, such as Boston, Atlantic City and Walt Disney World. Heather also graduated from KSU with a minor in dance.
Heather began competing in the Miss America Scholarship Program in 2007 as an opportunity to dance and perform all while obtaining scholarship money to help pay for school. Throughout her years of competing she has accrued $30,000 in scholarship money.
Heather’s personal platform is Divorce Recovery for Youth, a program designed to help children better understand a parent’s divorce. Heather struggled as a child and teenager with divorce, so she created a program to help kids understand what divorce means for a family and that it is an adult problem.
Divorce Recovery for youth is a Five-point-Star program that focuses on understanding divorce, knowing it’s never a child’s fault, managing feelings, communication, and forgiveness. Working with schools, the YMCA and Boys and Girls clubs, Heather enjoys helping children of all ages overcome the same obstacles that she once did.
