(MITCHELL) - Sutton Roach, a Mitchell High School senior, will be leaving Sunday for Kokomo to compete in the Indiana's Distinguished Young Woman.
Roach is Lawrence County's 2012 Junior Miss. She is the daughter of Angela Wilson and Mike Roach.
She received $3,200 from the local program last fall after claiming the title. Roach is undecided on a college choice but plans to major in communications and journalism.
Twenty high school senior girls will compete for scholarships in the three-day competition that begins Feb. 22. Finals are Feb. 25. The girls are judged on fitness, creative and performing arts, scholastics, a judge's interview and self expression.
