Kira Kavantsev, Miss America 2015, visited the Richmond Avenue School in Atlantic City on Friday to recognize the school's efforts in collecting the most donated food for the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.

The appearance was a follow-up to a visit by many of the Miss America contestants during Miss America competition week to pick up the food collection and deliver and stock it at the Rescue Mission.

The Miss America Organization invited me to be a part of the Richmond Avenue School celebration, and I was there to hear Kira's pep talk to the students and to see her perform her signature song "Happy" on the cup, the performance that generated so much reaction during the Miss America talent competition.
