Miss North Carolina USA 2022 is Morgan Romano

Concord resident, Morgan Romano, has been crowned Miss North Carolina USA 2022 in a state competition held at High Point Theater on Saturday, January 29.

The 23-year-old beauty holds a degree in chemical engineering and currently working as an application engineer at R.E. Mason in Charlotte. According to her bio, she has a passion for STEM education for children and spends her free time volunteering with Project Scientist, an after-school program that provides a high-quality STEM curriculum to young girls.

During her year, Morgan plans on expanding her initiative “Outside the Box”, which provides science kits to classrooms, children’s hospitals, libraries, and to students in need. It also focuses on spreading the message that it is okay to fully embrace who you are, no matter what that may be and she hopes to set that example by wearing the Miss North Carolina USA crown and being a woman in STEM.

The new Miss North Carolina USA succeeded last year's winner Madison Bryant and will now prepare to represent "The Tar Heel State" at the Miss USA 2022 national pageant.

"A moment I’ve been dreaming about since I was a little girl. Gratitude, shock, excitement. No words can even begin to describe how I’ve felt since this moment. Years of hard work, discipline, and sacrifices led to this perfect moment all in perfect timing. North Carolina, I can’t wait to serve you and represent you," she shared on social media after her victory.
