    Jami Dendler, a senior at Avon High School, was named the first Distinguished Young Woman of Avon on Saturday.

    Dendler is the daughter of Scott and Sharon Dendler, and the sister of Kati and Heidi. She was sponsored by Nova Sydal.

    Dendler is an active participant in her church, on Avon High School’s executive board, a member of Avon Incredible Mentors, Avon Choir and Show Choir, and acts and sings in Fall Musicals at her school. She is a member of the National Honor Society and plans to attend Belmont University next fall to major in forensic psychology.

    Her vocal performance, Quella fiamma, won her a Talent Scholarship. She was also named scholastic first runner up.

    Dendler will go on to compete with young women from across the state in the Distinguished Young Women of Indiana program in Kokomo on Feb. 23-25, 2012. The winner of that competition will then advance to June 2012 nationals in Mobile, Ala., as Indiana’s representative.

    The Distinguished Young Woman of Avon first runner up was Lauren Rogers, sponsored by Avon Tri Kappa. She also received category scholarships in interview, talent, and fitness.

    The Distinguished Young Woman of Avon second runner up, Amanda Zolcak, was sponsored by Avon Chamber of Commerce. She was the overall scholastics winner, as well as another fitness winner. Zolcak also received the Be Your Best Self scholarship.

    Other category scholarship awards went to Destinee Smith for interview, Myranda Gors and Abby Flajs for self expression, Abby Flajs for scholastic second runner up, and Sara Carter for Spirit of Distinguished Young Women of Avon.
