“Everyone kept telling me, ‘you’re going to win,’ but I didn’t really believe it because the others were really good. Then when they called my name as the overall winner, I said, ‘Wow, I actually won!’
Lindsey Marie Hill, 17, smiled as she recalled the moment she won the Miss Distinguished Young Woman 2015 for Shelby County.
“The whole experience was very exciting,” she said.
Hill was one of 13 contestants, 10 from Franklin County and 3 from Shelby County.
