Miss America Laura Kaeppeler performs at Carthage College

KENOSHA -- Miss America Laura Kaeppeler returned to her Alma Mater Thursday, March 15th with a visit to Carthage College.

Kaeppeler graduated from the school in 2010.

This was Kaeppeler's second trip home since winning Miss America. Last time, she sang the National Anthem at a Milwaukee Bucks game, and finally got to meet Aaron Rodgers.

"He was very, very nice.  He was very genuine and down to earth. I had a lot of family and friends up there and he spent as much time as needed to take pictures and say hello and he didn't have to do that, so it was just very -- it was a nice gesture.  He's a really nice guy," Kaeppeler said.

Kaeppeler performed at Carthage College Thursday night, singing songs from the talent competition of Miss America.
