Ashley Stevens became the 2015 Distinguished Young Woman of Tennessee at the conclusion of the week-long competition Saturday evening at Lee University’s Dixon Center.

Stevens came to the title after being DYW of Tullahoma.

Cleveland’s own Savannah Stone was awarded first runner- up and Macy Marin of Cumberland Valley was named second runner-up.

The Spirit Award was given to Chloe Lyle of Signal Mountain.

Judges gave recognition to three in each of the categories of competition.

The honorees were:

- Interview — Stone, Hannah Reese (Loudon County) and Marin.

- Scholastic — Ally Coyle (Shelby County), Stevens and Courtney Johnson (Sevier County).

- Talent — Lyle, Emily Wilt (East Brainard) and Stevens.

- Fitness — Kadee Klimowicz (Rhea County), Marin and Elizabeth Merriman (McMinn County).

A record 24 women travelled to Cleveland for the event in which their scores from each category were averaged to determine who would win the Tennessee title.

More details will follow in Monday’s issue of the Daily Banner.
