CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Those who know her best say Dr. Erin Fluegge Woolf is more than just a pretty face. She is a professor at Southeast Missouri State University, and now holds the title of Mrs. Missouri. She earned the crown March 1 in a competition in Kansas City after earning the title of Mrs.Cape Girardeau. 

"I just always tell my students to step outside their comfort zone and try something new," said Fluegge Woolf. "I've always been a performer, but this was something new for me. I had never competed in a pageant. I hope this is something that I can now use to inspire others." 

To compete in the Mrs. Missouri America Pageant she had to gain the community title 'Mrs. Cape Girardeau ' first. There is no actual competition for the local title here. It is bestowed based on a sponsorship and qualifying process.
 
During the pageant there is a swimsuit and evening gown competition and of course, the interview.

"The judges ask you all kinds of questions about everything from current events to politics to how did you meet your husband to what do you feel is the color of success," said Fluegge Woolf. 

She will hold the title until 2015. Meanwhile, she will be making appearances across the state speaking on behalf of the Safe House for Women and her platform for the competition, the Vintage Now Fashion Show, which supports the Safe House. 

"I am really excited to share with others all the wonderful things that happen when you make connections through the fashion show and how we improve the lives of women at the Safe House," said Fluegge Woolf. "I love sharing with others all of the good things about Cape Girardeau and our community." 

In August, she will compete for the title of Mrs. America in Tucson, Arizona. We learned there are several other women from the Heartland who have also been crowned Mrs. Missouri. Fluegge Woolf said she has been able to connect with some of them as well. 

"I really would not be here if not for the support of the community. My husband and students helped me prepare for the interview process, and so many others donated items like vintage jewelry and other services to help me. It was truly a local effort and I really appreciate it," said Fluegge Woolf. 

When the crown comes off, Dr. Fluegge Woolf says she and her husband Rob like to get out into the community and have as much fun as possible. She says they are 'dog parents' to a 5-year-old Boxer. She also just completed her first marathon.

Meanwhile, she hopes to inspire others that anything if possible if they keep a positive attitude and believe in themselves. She will be spending a lot of time this year doing speaking engagements and getting ready for the Vintage Now Fashion Show in October.
