Opelika, Ala.
Miss America is paying a visit to her hometown in Alabama.

Mallory Hagan will tour Opelika Thursday. Her stop includes a sold-out luncheon and an evening reception.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports Hagan met with local leaders including school board members on Wednesday.

Hagan says it's wonderful to be part of a community where everyone is on her side.

Hagan grew up in Lee County and left after spending one year at Auburn University to move to New York City. She was representing the state of New York when she was crowned Miss America 2013 in January.

The 24-year-old Hagan says she couldn't get away from her hometown fast enough when she was 19, but it's great to be back now.
