State Representative David Reis (R – Willow Hill) is pictured here with Carmi resident and newly crowned Miss Illinois Teen USA Olivia Bohleber. Bohleber was in Springfield on Thursday February 16 to visit with lawmakers and share her platform. Olivia is currently a junior at Carmi High School. She is actively involved in cheerleading, track and field, Girls’ Athletic Club, Student Council, KEY Club, STEM Club, Math Team, and the Maroon Platoon. As part of her duties as Miss Illinois Teen USA, Olivia is advocating on behalf of Operation Christmas Child and the Warriors for Ross Foundation which helps children suffering from pancreatic cancer.
“I want to thank Olivia for sharing time with us in Springfield and for visiting the House floor,” Reis said. “Her resume is quite impressive already and the future is bright for her. I am very proud to have Miss Illinois Teen USA as a resident of my district. She is an excellent ambassador for the issues she cares so deeply about and I wish her the best of luck during this year of her reign.”
