Ms. United States Laura Eilers Returns to Kansas City November 13-14

On Sunday, November 13, Ms. United States 2011 Laura Eilers will appear during the 8:00am morning show on Kansas City's KSHB-TV NBC station. She and morning news anchor Najahe Sherman will discuss the Let's Move initiative to curb childhood obesity.

A native of Lee's Summit, Mo., Sherman and Eilers share a common bond as former high school cheerleading teammates, followed by both cheering at the professional level for the NFL Kansas City Chiefs. Following the morning news program, Eilers will appear at the Kansas City Chiefs game throwing the ceremonial first pass with alumni football player Kimble Anders. Over 100 Chiefs Cheerleaders are expected to attend the game for their annual reunion.

On Monday, November 14, Eilers will represent Let's Move and the American Heart Association at Nieman Elementary in Shawnee, Kan. She will present the school with their award for completing the Jumprope for Heart campaign.

"It's very important for fitness professionals like myself to speak directly to kids about eating right and exercising," says Eilers, a certified personal trainer. "If a child does not receive this influenced at home, they most certainly must receive proper education and motivation at school and in the community."

Eilers will round out her visit to the Midwest with a visit to her alma mater, William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo. Eilers will be a special guest at her sorority chapter meeting. Eilers was an active Delta Zeta during her four years at Jewell, serving as secretary, vice president of recruitment, and Homecoming chair. This summer, Delta Zeta Sorority featured Eilers in their national magazine, The Lamp.
