Shannon Rook ran on a platform of squashing the stigma of mental illness. As a teacher, Rook said that she sees kids facing issues and that she wants to show people how to intervene for kids who suffer from mental illness so they can be productive members of society. The pageant is September 15th starting at the historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown Sioux Falls. You can buy tickets at the door.
