I’m all yours, USA," Morgan posted on social media following her coronation ceremony held at Woltosz Theatre, Gogue Performing Arts Center. The special event coincided with Miss Alabama Teen USA and Miss Alabama USA 2023 preliminary competitions organized by  RPM Productions . North Carolina now holds a record of four Miss USA titleholders. Previous winners were Chelsea Cooley (2005), Kristen Dalton (2009), and the late Cheslie Kryst (2019).
