CMR Grad is Miss Montana 2008

Jennifer Hepner, Miss Montana 2008 We have a new Miss Montana: Jennifer Hepner, a graduate of CMR high school and now a student at UM in Missoula, was crowned Saturday night! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Miss Hepner; she’s a good kid. She’s an Air Force brat (hooray!) and worked summers at the Malmstrom clinic several years ago.
She’s also a pageant pro: she represented Great Falls at the 2007 pageant and the 2006 pageant. Congrats on winning the title, Jennifer – you’ll represent Montana (and Great Falls!) well!
