Tuesday night August 30th, the Distinguished Young Women of Walker County, formerly known as Walker County’s Junior Miss, will be held at Rowland Auditorium. Last year Allison Farris from Walker High School won the Junior Miss Program. This year we have three girls from Walker High School competing for the crown; Hannah Studdard, Winter Scoles and Ashten Duncan. The girls will be competing in fitness, public speaking, interviews, scholastics, and on-stage talent. The girls are also competing for more than $4,000 in scholarship money. The winner will advance to Alabama’s state program in Montgomery in January of 2012 where they will be eligible for more scholarships. Hannah Studdard’s talent will be a vocal selection of “What I Did for Love”, from “A Chorus Line”. Winter Scoles’ talent will be a lyrical dance/gymnastics routine to “Cry”, by Alex Calise. Ashten Duncan’s talent will be a vocal selection of “At Last”, by Etta James. Good luck to all the contestants, you will represent us well!
