Seventeen high school junior girls will be showing their talents and accomplishments, as they participate in the annual Franklin County Distinguished Young Woman Scholarship Program.
A seminar was held for the girls, who are from both West Side and Preston High schools, where guest speaker Tara Egley Nielson, former Jr. Miss recipient, explained the program and how to be their best self. Elizabeth Childs and Becky Childs Johnson, also former titled Jr. Miss winners, gave tips and information on showing their best talents, physical fitness and interview skills during the stage performance. Last year’s court, “The Forget-Me-Not’s,” presented a fashion show.
This year the theme for the Farm Bureau sponsored event is Treasures Within. Julie Smith and Vickie Henderson are co-chairmen for the event. Tickets will go on sale at the Farm Bureau April 2. The program will be held April 13 at the Preston High School.
The Franklin County Distinguished Young Woman Scholarship Program, formerly Franklin County Jr. Miss Program, has been sponsored by the Franklin County Farm Bureau for more than 25 years. All girls who are a junior at any county high school are invited to try out for scholarship money.
