Laura Kaeppler, Miss America 2012, has canceled her scheduled visit to Buffalo, which was scheduled for Tuesday, because of Hurricane Sandy.

Kaeppler was slated to participate in events at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site associated with Peaceprints Prison Ministries, a nonprofit that helps prisoners transition back to the community. Kaeppler’s platform is “Circles of Support – Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents.”

Organizers are hoping to reschedule her visit before her reign as Miss America ends in January.
