Former Miss Alcorn to appear in September 2013 issue of Ebony magazine

Airnecia Mills ’13 will grace the pages of Ebony in the magazine’s annual HBCU Campus Queens feature. Voting began May 8 and Braves’ fans were off! When voting ended June 7, Mills had secured a spot as one of the ten crowning beauties finishing the competition in fifth place. She is the second Miss Alcorn to appear in this publication; in 2004, another Greenville native Shequeta Wells Murphy was also featured.

A dream come true, Mills is thankful to the many that voted. “I could not have done it alone, it truly took everyone voting day-in and day-out and I am eternally grateful and honored to represent my alma mater. This is a moment that I will never forget,” expressed an overjoyed Mills.

During her time at Alcorn, Mills was on the cheerleading squad, served as a student ambassador and was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and the Student National Education Association (SNEA). Today, she is putting her elementary education degree to work in her hometown of Greenville, Mississippi, working in the Greenville Public School District as a first grade teacher at Weddington Elementary.

Ebony HBCU Campus Queens features queens from across the country, poised to make positive change in the African American community. Pick up your copy now to see your Miss Alcorn State University 2012-13. Congratulations Airnecia!
