When Betty Cantrell took the crown as Miss America last night, the celebration was especially sweet for a member of our Generation W community. Betty is the niece of Dodie Cantrell-Bickley, former president and general manager for WTLV/WJXX First Coast News-Jacksonville.  Dodie currently serves on the faculty of the Grady School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia and is also a partner in Cantrell White Communications, a division of Client Focused Media in Jacksonville.  In case you missed the magical moment last night, click here for a look back at Betty Cantrell’s crowning moment.
