Distinguished Young Women is a national scholarship program that inspires high school girls to develop their full, individual potential through a fun, transformative experience that culminates in a celebratory showcase of their accomplishments. Founded in 1958 in Mobile, Ala., it is the largest and oldest national scholarship program for high school girls.
The participates share the “Be Your Best Self” program with third grade girls, encouraging them to stay in school, lead a healthy lifestyle and live by moral and ethical principles.
During the past several weeks, the senior girls have been preparing to present the program.
Participating this year are Taylor Booth, Natasha Burns, Michaela Comes, Alexandra Macey and Courtney Meachem.
The junior class will present a fashion show featuring prom dresses and tuxes from the Fashion Corner in Port Henry. The program also has six third grade girls as part of the Little Sister program.
There will be many items, gift certificates and baskets that will be raffled off, donated by area business to sponsor the scholarship fund.
“The committee would like to thank everyone throughout the area that sponsor the program every year,” said Jill Spring, program chairwoman. “Thank you.’
