Miss COED 2016 Finalist Spotlight: Logan Chappell, Georgia Southern

You’d never know it, but Logan was once the “awkward shy kid who was always picked on.” These days she’s hit full-on babe status thanks to her good looks, smarts, and awesome sense of humor.
The Georgia Southern University senior went from crying herself to sleep every night as a kid to studying business and kicking ass. There’s no doubt that she’s prevailed through tough times and is a notable role model for young people going through similar struggles, but can she win the Miss COED 2016 title?
Considering how far she’s come, we have a good feeling… but the decision is up to YOU. Check back January 27th when polls open for the final round.

You mentioned that you’re a ZTA alumni. What made you give up sorority life?
The main reason is that I transferred colleges after freshman year and it just didn’t feel right re-affiliating with completely different girls. Before college, I was always turned off by how cliquey Greek life was; I saw them as the stuck-up “popular kids,” but I gave it a shot and joined ZTA in the Eta Alpha chapter because of how amazing and accepting the girls were. I am forever thankful for them, but now it is time for me to focus on my future and that does not involve ZTA and I am completely content with that.
Have you always wanted to be a Georgia Southern Eagle?
I was raised to be a Georgia Southern Eagle, but growing up in the town it was in, my papa convinced me I should get the full college experience and go out of town, so I started college at Georgia Southwestern. It was fun, but it just didn’t feel right, so I transferred to Georgia Southern – where I am meant to be.
You’re a senior. One of the most popular questions you’ll get as graduation approaches is, “What are your plans after you graduate?” How do you hope to answer that come May?
I added a second major which added another year to my college career so I still have one more year after this one. I don’t have any particular job I would like to do, but being a double major gives me endless opportunities and options. I will take the job that allows me to move to an awesome city, particularly one that I could pursue modeling on the side. I’m a small town girl dying to experience the big city life.
Why did you decide to teach yourself French?
I admire those who are bilingual, I have always wanted to be one of those people and French has always been the most beautiful language to me. I so badly want to travel to Europe, and being able to speak French when I do will make my experience so much better.
Many students change their major. Are you happy with your choice now?
Absolutely! I started as a pre-nursing major and it was a nightmare. I’m not sure what I was thinking. Business is an incredible major, the opportunities are infinite. I don’t like staying in the same place for long, so it’s comforting to know I won’t be stuck doing the same thing for the rest of my life.
Are there any misconceptions about you that you’d like to clarify?
When I get to know people they always seem so surprised at how nice and down to earth I am. Some people believe that I’m stuck-up and super into myself because of how I look, but I’m really sweet and goofy. I never try to be perfect; I accept my imperfections and others as well.
What is your proudest moment?
This is going to sound cheesy, but making it to the final round of Miss COED. As a child I never fit it, I was the awkward shy kid who was always picked on. All I wanted was to be accepted. As a little girl I would lay in bed at night crying from the mean things people would say to me at school and I would beg God to make me pretty. I wanted to be the popular girl, I wanted someone to notice me (pathetic I know). And then I got to college and joined a sorority and people finally started to notice me. The fact that I have made it this far in the competition makes me so thankful for how far I have come as a person. I’m so blessed with those that have loved me and supported me enough to vote for me every day and get me this far. I feel like I am finally the girl that my 12-year-old self was dying to be. I’m no longer being looked over, people are actually noticing me and it’s amazing to feel like I finally fit in.
Do you have any superstitions?
Thou shall not wear red on game day. Hail Southern.
If your high school self could talk to you now, what do you think she would say?
I think she would be very proud of me. High school was rough. I was always struggling to keep my grades up, I was making awful decisions and I did whatever I could to try to fit in and make people like me. In reality, I was trying to be someone I wasn’t just for attention. I finally grew up and I admit to my mistakes and I’ve changed a lot of things. I can finally be myself. I care less about what others think of me. This is the happiest I’ve ever been; I was in a very dark place in high school, I’m so thankful I made it through and I’ve learned to embrace life as it is and just embrace who I truly am! I have so much to be thankful for and proud of. I have one crazy beautiful life.
Where are you originally from?
I’m originally from the huge town of Statesboro, Georgia (I hope you catch my sarcasm there). As much as I want to leave Statesboro, I have to be thankful for it. If it weren’t for Statesboro, there would be no Zaxbys or Georgia Southern, and those are my two favorite things.
