Morgan Romano

Morgan Romano, Miss North Carolina USA 2022, is a resident of Concord, NC. She has a passion for STEM education for children and spends her free time volunteering with Project Scientist, an after-school program that provides a high quality STEM curriculum to young girls.

Morgan is an alumna of the University of South Carolina where she obtained a Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering in 2020. She is currently an Application Engineer at R.E. Mason in Charlotte, NC.

During her year, Morgan plans on expanding her initiative “Outside the Box”, which provides science kits to classrooms, children’s hospitals, libraries, and to students in need. It also focuses on spreading the message that it is okay to fully embrace who you are, no matter what that may be. Morgan hopes to set that example by wearing the Miss North Carolina USA crown and being a woman in STEM.
