Name: Alicia McInerney
Hometown: Bay City, MI
Education: Central Michigan University – 2011 – Communications
Platform: Ignite the Passion Within
Talent: Figure Skating
Non-finalist Talent at Miss Michigan 2012
Beginning her Miss America journey in 2009, Alicia began competing for the title of Miss Bay County in need of scholarship money. Two years later, after being crowned Miss Bay County 2012, her journey was no longer focused on scholarship money, but on giving back to her community. Her main focus during her reign was to be involved in the community as much as possible – and that she was, booking as many as 10 commitments a week. Her platform, Ignite the Passion Within, focused on working with community leaders, educators and coaches to help kids, teens and young adults find their passion and use it to build a better life for themselves.
Her year was filled with many exciting moments including living in Switzerland for 3-months, visiting the site of the London 2012 Olympic Games, and making history at Miss Michigan by being the first contestant to figure skate on synthetic ice for her talent. Alicia was awarded the non-finalist talent award at Miss Michigan 2012.
Where are they now?
Alicia is now married and a new mother. She currently works at The Dow Chemical Company as a marketing communications manager. She is also still heavily involved in the Miss Bay County Scholarship Program as an active board member.
