Miss University of Georgia 2014
Adeline Kenerly is a second-year student in broadcast/digital journalism and political science from Jesup, Georgia. She is the daughter of Dr. John Kenerly III and Joy Bland Kenerly (who was Miss UGA 1981).
Adeline is an honor student with a 3.99 GPA, and she has been on the UGA Dean's List each semester she's been enrolled. She has recently been accepted to the Grady College of Journalism. Adeline is involved in a number of campus life activities including being a member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, a UGA Majorette for the Redcoat Band, holding leadership roles in both UGA Relay for Life and HEROS at UGA and serving as a member of the Student Government Association.
During her year of service, Adeline will promote her platform "Helping Heroes: Support for America's Veterans." This issue is timely and of national importance as growing numbers of veterans are returning home every year andneed assistance as they transition to civilian life. Adeline will work with former Miss America 2000 Heather French and her foundation to aid these men and women who are searching for answers on financial aid, medical issues and work-related programs. She has also aligned her platform with the national "Welcome Johnny and Jane Home Project," which focuses on bridging the gap between veterans and non-veterans.
Adeline will represent the University of Georgia when she competes in the 2014 Miss Georgia Scholarship Pageant June 18-21 in Columbus. The winner of this pageant will represent Georgia in the Miss America Pageant next September.
