Andalusia High School senior Ivy Rogers represented Covington County at the 2024 Distinguished Young Women of Alabama competition and earned a top-eight finish.

The competition was held on Friday, Jan. 19, and Saturday, Jan. 20, at Frazer Church’s Wesley Hall in Montgomery.

“Ivy has grown up in our program throughout the years. She has been a part of our local program in just about any way possible. From her mom being a past board member and her attending several local and state programs to being the talent at one of the shows with her dad, participating in Distinguished Darlings and the Little Sisters programs, she has done it all. She has worked so hard to be on that stage not only this past year but for several years preparing herself for this moment. Ivy not only represented Covington County so well but was in the top eight of the Distinguished Young Women of Alabama Program,” a DYW Covington County statement read.

Rogers also received preliminary winnings in the Fitness and Scholastics categories at the competition, along with her top-eight finish.

“We are so proud to call Ivy ours. I hope she knows just how proud we are of her. Please help us congratulate her on all of her hard work during the state program. We cannot wait to see how Ivy will continue to make us proud in her future,” the statement added.

She is the daughter of Scott and Tina Rogers with a younger sister, Alice Rogers. She will graduate from Andalusia High School in May and plans to pursue a degree in Biomedical Sciences from UAB with aspirations of becoming a dermatologist.
