HOT SPRINGS, S.D. – For the first time, a former Miss South Dakota has been elected to represent the Miss South Dakota Organization as president.
Kate Wismer, Miss South Dakota 2007 and most recently Miss South Dakota executive director, was elected president of the Miss South Dakota Organization following the resignation of September Kirby, who was president for three years.
“I’m looking forward to stepping into the role of president of our Miss South Dakota Board. We have such a well-oiled machine here in South Dakota, and I’m extremely grateful to be serving as president with so many experienced board members currently serving, said Wismer.
Upon Wismer’s election, Kirby stepped into the role of past president and will remain on the board to provide guidance for the upcoming year. Several other individuals were nominated and elected to represent this years board.
Former Miss South Dakota 1980 Carol Nesbitt and former Miss South Dakota competitor Glenda Mostek were elected co-executive directors on this years board. Libby Gould was elected to represent the Miss South Dakota Teen program as the teen executive director for the third year. Linda Soyland was elected treasurer, and Margaret Hofer secretary. Sally Isburg was elected judge chair. She has volunteered with the organization for over 30 years.
