Miller second runner-up at DYW nationals

Kassie Miller, a Taylor County native who recently graduated from Taylor County High School, was the second runner-up at the Distinguished Young Women Nationals in Mobile, Ala., over the weekend.

But Miller says she had no expectations with regard to winning, as she faced stiff competition.

“It was really hard to have any expectations going into it, because as we rehearsed ... you noticed that each girl was good in each category,” she said. “It was entirely hard to tell not only who would win but who would even make the top 10.”
