Macon East senior, Hannah Johnson competed in the Macon County Distinguished Young Women scholarship program on Saturday, September 23. DYW (formerly Junior Miss) is a national scholarship program that celebrates the accomplishments of young women in the areas of scholastic achievement, leadership, and talent. The contestants are judged in the areas of poise, physical fitness, and talent during the performance as well as academic achievement and judges’ interviews held prior to the competition. Singing “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music, Hannah was named 1st Runner Up for Macon County. Hannah was also selected to receive the Spirit of DYW award, which is a special award voted on by the other contestants. We congratulate Hannah on her accomplishments and applaud her for representing Macon East in the 2018 Distinguished Young Women program.
