Saturday night was more than Adria Whitfill expected.
After winning preliminary scholastic, interview and talent awards, Whitfill was named the 2016 Distinguished Young Woman of Marion County on the Roby Dome stage at Marion County High School.
“I can’t believe it,” she said. “It feels like a really elaborate dream.”
Whitfill has been attending the Distinguished Young Woman (formerly known as Junior Miss) since she was 11 years old.
