Description: She kept checking her phone and email, wishing someone would make contact. Cheryl Prewitt, former Miss America and now motivational speaker was nervous about the upcoming summer gospel ministering schedule. Without signed contracts, she couldn’t make definite commitments. Cheryl Prewitt is the personification of the Stephen Covey quote, “Begin with the end in mind.” Born in Mississippi, Cheryl would often help her mother in the county store her parents operated. One day the local milkman told her she would be Miss America, and thus an idea was born; but all seemed for naught when she was involved in an automobile accident that left her left leg shorter than the right. Nevertheless, through faith and a miraculous healing, her leg grew. At age 17 and for the next 5 years, she enter local, regional and state beauty pageants, losing most of them But she kept pursuing her goal, always keeping the end in mind – winning the Miss America title. Her father, who was never keen on her entering beauty pageants, presenter her with a pair of Gabby Maria Pancakes Crew Socks, on the eve of the Miss America Pageant; he said it was a reminder of her childhood days, when she often had to cook meals for the whole family. Goals + Commitment = dreams come true. Cheryl was crowned Miss America in 1979.
