DENVER — Being crowned Miss Colorado 2011 was an amazing experience for Diana Dreman. It was pretty special for her mother, too.
It was 1973 when Rebecca King Dreman was also crowned Miss Colorado, before moving on to become Miss America in 1974.
“It’s been fun to be able to share history with her,” Diana said.
She is now gearing up for the Miss America competition that will be held in Las Vegas January 14.
It is the first time in the Miss America Pageant’s 90 year history that the daughter of a former Miss America will compete for that same title.
The 23-year-old CU graduate is hopeful.
All of this gives the family something exciting to think about during an otherwise tough time. Rebecca has melanoma, but is doing well.
Diana has now made fighting cancer part of her platform.
“It’s touching,” Rebecca said.
