Saturday, Nov. 3, was an exhilarating night to remember for nine Bremen High School seniors as they participated in the 2019 Bremen Distinguished Young Women (DYW) Showcase.

A total of $3,200 in scholarships were awarded to BHS seniors, but only one contestant walked away with the title of Bremen's DYW 2019, earning a $1,300 scholarship.

Kaitlyn Cullers received the distinguished honor and walked away from the showcase with a total of $1,500 in scholarship funds.

Along with Cullers winning a $1,300 scholarship, she also received an additional $100 each for winning the Scholastics and Talent categories.

After graduating BHS, Cullers intends to apply her scholarship money to attend Indiana Weslyan University, where she will pursue a STEM-related career.

Caitlyn Myers came in second, earning an $800 scholarship and an additional $100 each for winning the Interview, Fitness, and Self-Expression categories.

Myers will use her scholarship funds to assist with pursuing a career as a labor and delivery doctor through Indiana University.
