Alyssa Hurst of Lineville was crowned Miss Southern Union 2023 during the college’s annual pageant held January 19. Hurst will now go on to compete in the Miss Alabama Pageant, which will be held in Birmingham this summer.
Four young women competed for the title of Miss Southern Union. Contestants were judged in private interview, talent, evening wear, and on-stage question. In addition to each of the judged categories, contestants are required to select a social impact initiative, choosing a topic in which they are currently involved or about which they feel strongly, such as a form of community service.
