2016 Girl of the Year
2016 became a year of "first's" and it began with the first ever The Crowning Moment's - Girl of the Year. In 2014, TCM began selecting Girls of the Month based on personal achievements, pageant accomplishments, and volunteerism. The Girls of the Month had to submit an essay based on volunteerism and why they deserved the honor and a separate panel of judges selected a Top 5. From the top five, 15 year old, McKenzie Nassar was selected as the first Girl of the Year.
McKenzie became a role model for her TCM sisters and young people everywhere. Her peers began to list her as their personal role models. Her personal platform, at the time, was "Helping Our Veterans." Presently, she has volunteered with a plethora of organizations and volunteered over 2,300 hours.
