Music was the connecting theme Saturday night as the 2013 Distinguished Young Women Program celebrated “Motown Madness.” This year’s four contestants more than made up for what they may have lacked in numbers by filling the stage at Forest Capital Hall with poise, energy and exuberance before a crowd of cheering family and friends.

Taylor County High School senior MaKenzie Cannon was named the 2013 Florida Forest Festival Distinguished Young Woman of Taylor County, and will reign over this year’s festivities and represent her community at the state program in January. She is the daughter of Ron and Jessica Cannon and Dawn Arnold.
