June 24, 2017 – Richfield, WI – Danika Tramburg of Richfield is the current Miss Wisconsin United States.
A graduate of Living Word Lutheran High School in Jackson, Tramburg will be competing at Miss United States Organization’s National Pageant on July 8 in Orlando, Florida.
Below is a portion of Tramburg’s story that appeared on Concordia University News.
Tramburg will serve as Miss Wisconsin United States for the next year, lending a helping hand to organizations that are near to her heart. One organization that Tramburg says she has already begun to partner with is the Alzheimer’s Association.
Tramburg’s grandmother, who died three years ago from the disease, was the motivation for her involvement.
“It was the effect that I saw it had on my grandfather and our family,” Tramburg said. “When you lose your mind, it’s losing a sense of who you are, so it’s really sad to see that happen.”
In addition to the Alzheimer’s Association, Tramburg says she looks forward to the other opportunities she will have to serve.
“I feel like I have been so blessed in my life,” she said. “Everything I have, it’s all a gift from God and I feel like I can show His light through me by giving back to others.”
