Top 5 & Miss Congeniality at Miss USA 2016

A native of Eufaula, Peyton Brown was crowned Miss Alabama USA on 7 November 2015 and represented Alabama at the Miss USA 2016 pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada. Peyton studied communications at the University of Alabama and is passionate about skin cancer awareness.

2016 bio:

Peyton Brown is currently a senior in Communication Studies at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. She is active in her church, her school and her community and tries to give back in as many ways as possible.
She is particularly passionate about educating people, especially young women, on the importance of protecting their skin. Her commitment to this cause comes from losing her father to melanoma skin cancer in 2000. She would like to use her year as Miss Alabama USA to encourage others to understand what it takes to have healthy, beautiful skin and the dangers of over-exposure from the sun and tanning beds. Peyton is involved with the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life. She also spends time volunteering with the local Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama and the Make A Wish Foundation.
At the University of Alabama, Peyton juggles academics with helping out at local events and charities through her sorority and attending Church of the Highlands. She loves being outdoors and enjoys water sports, riding horses and staying active. She still considers herself a bit of a homebody and loves cooking and baking, and spending time at home with her family.
