A new Miss Wisconsin has officially been crowned, by the Miss America program.
Because Grace Stanke of Wausau won the Miss America title earlier this month, Kylene Spanbauer of Fond du Lac will complete the rest of Stanke’s term as Miss Wisconsin, until next June.
Spanbauer was the first-runnerup in the statewide contest won by Stanke last summer.
Spanbauer works as an educator to prevent sexual assault. She attended college at the University of Iowa, where she studied therapeutic recreation.
Stanke is the third Wisconsin representative to be named Miss America in the program’s history. She was crowned in Connecticut earlier in December.
