Haley Geiger is a senior at West Virginia University, majoring in Management Information Systems with a minor in Data Analytics. She has had a relatively short career in pageants, holding the titles of Distinguished Young Woman of West Virginia for 2017, Miss Tygart Valley 2018, and Miss Morgantown 2019. She also made the Top Eight at both Miss West Virginia 2018 and 2019. Theatre is her passion, and she has played in 41 musicals over her 15 years of acting. Among her best roles are Ariel Moore in Footloose, Cinderella in R&H's Cinderella in both 2015 and 2019, Patty Simcox in Grease, and Jovie in Elf.
Haley has had a knack for computers since a young age, but was dismayed at the lack of computer science education at her school and having to leap into a tech-heavy major with no formal background. To combat this and prevent students from having to take the risk she did, her platform aims to encourage students and schools to take an increased interest and create a new platform for advanced computer science education to give students opportunities and a diving board for a prosperous education and career in today's tech-based society.
