  • Shaletta Tawanna Porterfield won the 2011 Miss Wisconsin USA pageant held in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin on Sunday, September 19, 2010. The 2003 Walled Lake Central High School graduate was competing in her first pageant when she became the third black woman to win the Miss Wisconsin USA crown. Porterfield reigned as Miss Wisconsin USA until she resigned the title on May 12, 2011. The abrupt departure stemmed from being charged in Dane County Circuit Court with three felony counts of identity theft. With just five weeks before the 2011 Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas, Porterfield's first runner-up, Jordan Marie Morkin of Green Bay, assumed the Miss Wisconsin USA title and represented Wisconsin in the 60th annual Miss USA pageant on June 19, 2011. Morkin was also a first-time Miss Wisconsin USA entrant, however she competed in the 2007 and 2008 Miss Wisconsin Teen USA pageants, placing as a semi-finalist. Porterfield is the first woman to resign the Miss Wisconsin-USA title. Porterfield worked as a Ford Agency model, working mostly in Chicago. Miss Wisconsin USA is franchised by Future Productions, Inc. of Savage, Minnesota.
