The Crowning Moments & First Self Introduction, by Miss America Emma Broyles
Meet your new Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Morgan Greco!

The Opera Singer Morgan Greco Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2023

She tells about her talent: As some of you may or may not know, my passion for sing opera began when I was 9 years old at my 4th Grade talent show at Prune Hill Elementary! I got the opportunity to speak to local classrooms about my journey with opera and WENT BACK to a Prune Hill Elementary to speak to their 4th and 5th grade classes! And it’s all thanks to Enspire Arts @enspirearts , an amazing nonprofit organization in Camas, WA dedicated to promoting youth in arts. Last year I was honored to become 1 of 5 Arts Ambassadors with Enspire Arts. After the interviewing process, I was awarded a $500 scholarship to continue my operatic performance career and speak to classroom across my community about my journey as a young performer. Thank you Enspire Arts, I will continue to promote your message of artistic express in our youth long after my year as an Arts Ambassador is over.

Sign-off Statement by Marcelle LeBlanc
It’s so hard to believe that it’s time to crown a new Miss America’s Outstanding Teen.
When I arrived at the 2022 national competition, I had no idea what was in store for me. Being awarded the position of MAOTeen was beyond my wildest expectations. I immediately embarked on what became my greatest adventure yet. I traveled the country advocating for arts education, promoting the mission of the Miss America Organization, growing the Teen program, seeing parts of the country I have never seen before, and most importantly showing girls everywhere that they have a purpose, they have a voice, and they are worthy. 

This year has been nothing short of life-changing. The skills I have acquired, the lessons I’ve learned, and the growth I’ve experienced has made me a better person than I was 1 year ago. While this chapter of my life may be closing, this is only the beginning of a lifetime of experiences. I am ecstatic to use the $40,000 in cash scholarships that I have earned through this organization to graduate debt free from Auburn University with my bachelor’s degree in Accounting. I also look forward to the release of The Waltons’: Thanksgiving this November on the CW network. Be sure to tune in to see Mary Ellen back in action! But first, I look forward to welcoming a new girl to the MAOTeen sisterhood. I can’t wait to meet you, and watch you embark on the year of a lifetime!
