Tara Conner is a nationally recognized public speaker, model, television personality, and recovery advocate. This former beauty queen was crowned Miss USA in 2006 and also competed in the Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe pageants. Her role from pageant contestant and model has now shifted to that of public speaker and recovery advocate. Through her recovery work, her speaking appearances and her social media platforms she shares her experiences and her strength and hope with audiences throughout the United States.
The first woman from the State of Kentucky, to be crowned Miss USA, Tara Conner silently struggled with substance use as a young teen. In December of the year she was crowned, she entered treatment and completed 30 days for alcohol and drug addiction. Now a person in long term recovery, Tara speaks out to encourage others to seek treatment and also find their path to sobriety.
“At Cumberland Heights we appreciate the support from our many generous donors and sponsors to enhance programs to help women seeking recovery from alcohol and drug addiction,” said Martha Farabee, Chief Development and Marketing Officer at Cumberland Heights. “The luncheon would not be possible without the group of benefactors and committee members who make it a successful anticipated event every year. We are very excited to have inspirational speaker Tara Conner join us as our special guest for 2019. I know the attendees will come away from the luncheon not only entertained but inspired and moved by her story.”
In addition to hearing Tara’s inspiring story each year we honor a woman who has made a difference in the recovery community through the Sheila Keeble Award. This year we are proud to announce Louise Mandrell as the recipient. Past award recipients include Cindy Caudle, Leslie Dabrowiak, Lake Eakin, Elizabeth Fox, Stephanie Ingram, Genie Laurent, Janice Lovvorn and Eleanor Templeton.
