Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier, drew the 15thsemi-finalist name at random, Mrs. New York , Karen O’Hara. The delegates spent two weeks at The Greenbrier where they toured the Cold War-era Congressional bunker, learned the art of falconry and discovered the fun of fly fishing. They also spent a morning hanging drywall and siding on the Habitat for Humanity Women Build home in White Sulphur Springs, WV.
The Mrs. America pageant will air as a two-hour primetime special on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8, on My Family TV, R&R TV, Retro TV and the Dish Network.
