Crown Up! - State Pageant

Miss University of Alabama crowned Miss Alabama 2022

Lindsay Fincher has been crowned Miss Alabama 2022 after the 100th Anniversary event of Miss Alabama, held at Samford University’s Wright Center, on July 2, 2022. The event marked the end of a year-long celebration of the organization’s 100th  anniversary. Twenty-eight former Miss Alabama titleholders who attended this year’s competition included Heather Whitestone McCallum (Miss America 1995), Dr. Deidre Downs Gunn (Miss America 2005), and even Miss Alabama 1947 Peggy Elder Butler!

The native of Wedowee competed this year as Miss University of Alabama, besting 39 other contestants for the 2022 state title and winning the $15,000 cash scholarship that comes with the crown. After winning the Wednesday night talent competition and the Thursday night evening wear competition, Fincher succeeds Miss Alabama 2021, Lauren Bradford and starts now her preparation to represent her state at the upcoming edition of Miss America pageant, later this year.

Fincher is a graduate of the University of Alabama with degrees in political science and dance.

Fincher is not a newbie to Miss Alabama pageant. She was first runner-up to Bradford in the 2021 Miss Alabama competition. “I am just so excited to serve this organization and give back to this organization, because I competed for three years as a teen competitor, and then I did three years in Miss,” Fincher said. “So I’ve been involved with Miss Alabama for quite some time and I know how much I love this organization. I’m looking forward to giving back to the Miss Alabama organization that’s given so much to me. I’m looking forward to expanding the reach of the program, trying to recruit new candidates and spread the message of Miss Alabama and what the Miss America organization is about. So just make sure that everybody in Alabama knows what Miss Alabama is, knows the amazing things that we’re doing, and can get involved with this if they want to.
