New Miss Sylacauga champion crowned

SYLACAUGA Ala. – Your new Miss Sylacauga 2022 is Lacey Wood.

The 2021 edition of the Miss Sylacauga competition saw Lacey Wood, an 18-year old senior at Sylacauga High School (SHS), take home the title. She’ll now prepare for her opportunity to vie for the chance to become 2022 Miss Alabama next summer.

Wood also won the Anna Fay Comer Voice Scholarship and the Beth Yates Performing Arts Scholarship for Most Talented. Her talent was put on display by singing “Valerie” from the hit musical TV show Glee. The Miss Outstanding Teen Winner, Isabella Kirkland, also won the Beth Yates scholarship after dancing to “Rise Up” by Andra Day. Kirkland is a freshman at Fayetteville High School.

“The community support this year has been some of the best in years,” said Kim Parker Todd, Director of Miss Sylacauga and Miss Sylacauga 1993. “More than $11,000 in cash, in-kind and general scholarships were awarded thanks to the tremendous outpouring of the community.

Wood is a very active member of the student council and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) at SHS. Her Social Impact Initiative is special needs awareness, and she hopes to use her voice and platform in the future with plans to attend the University of Alabama and major in broadcast journalism. Wood’s message about her mission within the community was clear in her Social Impact Initiative essay:

“We must embrace the differences of one another. We must learn to live in a world where there are no set standards for students. There is no ‘one size fits all’ method of securing a thriving lifestyle.”
