Born and raised in Astoria, Oregon our newly crowned Miss Oregon, Alexis Mather, began participating in the Miss America Organization in 2009 as a teen contestant. In honor of the instrumental mentors throughout her life, Alexis hopes to pay forward her gratitude by dedicating her year of service with a strong focus on her platform, "Mentoring to Develop Leaders”. A current student at Portland State University, Alexis will be putting her studies on hold for a year to travel our great state, making appearances, hosting and singing at a wide range of events including benefit efforts for the greater good. Immediately after being crowned in early July, Alexis visited Washington DC, where she and her fellow state titleholders met with legislators, regarding the relevance and importance of the Miss America Scholarship Organization as the largest scholarship program for women in the nation.
