ROCKFORD (WREX) — Some students in the area got a visit from someone special on Tuesday.
Ariel Beverly, known as Miss Illinois, made a stop at STEAM Academy at Haskell and Flinn Middle School on Tuesday.
Students had a chance to talk to Beverly about her experience as well as show off their art work to her, something she said she appreciates.
“I love talking about what they are making because it’s the art teacher in me that’s really really excited to see the pride in what they’re making,” said Beverly.
Beverly won Miss Illinois at the 2019 state fair in Springfield.
