Katherine Webb is so last week. (Even though she was actually a topic in the Q&A portion.)
Yes, unbelievably (but not really), Auburn has a new beAUty queen to buff our nails with — but not just any beauty queen: THE beauty queen.
23-year-old Opelika native turned Miss New York Mallory Hagan was crowned Miss America tonight. Her platform? Stopping child sexual abuse. Her talent? Tap dancing. Her bikini? Black. Her college? Auburn. (Here she is an Auburn hat.)
We’re currently not sure whether Mallory graduated or not. She’s listed in Auburn’s alumni directory, which would imply yes. But there’s no accompanying graduation year, which would imply ______. Looks like it might have actually just been one year… one awesome, heck of a year. Surely she earned an honorary degree tonight, either way.
(And hey, she worked at Niffers.)
She also apparently held the title of Miss Teen Auburn Opelika once upon a time. And here she is singing “Achy Break Heart” somewhere around these parts when she was 4-years-old.

I don’t think you have to graduate to be named an alum. I believe it has to do with the number of hours you earn. Technically, a junior (hours wise) can be named an alum. At least that’s how it used to be.
Yeah, I’m all about the strict dictionary definition of alumni myself, use it frequently. But there’s no Cameron Newton in the directory. Or Victoria Jackson. I’m stumped.

Only one year? I guess she decided he looks could take her farther in life than a college degree. Oh well, the world needs beauty queens too.
