Anna O'Renick, a William Chrisman graduate and the first runner-up for Miss Czech-Slovak US in 2016, offers some thoughts during a reception Tuesday evening at Sugar Creek's Mike Onka to welcome Czech Television to the Kansas City area. The TV crew was visiting to film a segment commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Czech Republic (and Hungary and Poland) joining NATO in a ceremony at the Truman Library in Independence. The crew visited the Truman Library, World War I Museum and Strawberry Hill Museum in Kansas City, Kansas this week. Joining O'Renick were Janae Buckley of Nebraska (left), the reigning Miss Czech-Slovak US and Sara Vytlacil of Kansas, the 2017 second runner-up. [Mike Genet/The Examiner]
