Mrs. South Dakota Close to End of Reign
The current Mrs. South Dakota Shannon Rook embraces being a role model at this stage of her life. Her platform highlights the need for addressing mental health needs in the lives of children.
The importance of knowledge and awareness in the arena of mental health at the younger stages of life can produce so many fruitful results. When recognized early, the problem is smaller. Thus if the diagnosis is not made until a major event occurs later in life, the road back is infinitely longer.
During her time under the title she has promoted the benefits socially and academically of children’s mental health. She is also a teacher and is extremely motivated to continue in that endeavor. The new Mrs. South Dakota will be crowned on September 15 in Sioux Falls at the Orpheum Theater. Mrs. Rook was on KSOO’s Viewpoint University and gave a synopsis of her time as Mrs. South Dakota.
