Local teen represents West Virginia in national scholarship competition

PRINCETON (WVVA)- A local high school graduate is preparing to compete in a national scholarship competition.

 Natalia Lopez of Princeton was selected to represent the state of West Virginia in the 56th Distinguished Young Women National Finals in Mobile, Alabama.

It was her love of gymnastics that got her to the final round-- as fitness and talent are part of the criteria for selection.

Natalia looks forward to sharing her experience with others so that they are inspired to believe in themselves.

The winner will receive more than $100,000 in scholarships and represent the program as the Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2013.
