Congratulations to the New Miss Southeastern Ohio, Ashleigh Lemon!

Tonight Jenna Wilson crowned a new Miss Souteastern Ohio, Ashleigh Lemon [right]. Ashleigh is from Caldwell, Ohio, and is a senior at Muskingum College majoring in Conservation Science. For the talent portion she sang "Crazy;" on the Miss SEO website she said she wanted the title to "incorporate the title of Miss SEO with promoting my platform issue to the public.”

Ashleigh competed in this pageant last year, but did not place. Last year's website further shared that her favorite quote is: "When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life." Three words that describe her best are: Intellectual, Personable, Self-motivated. Last year her platform was “Bio-diversity: The Race Against Time.”

The First Runner-up was Laura LaCara of Dresden. She is pursuing Musical Theatre at Wright State University; tonight she sang "Astonishing."

Karissa Martin was named Second Runner-up. She studies Music Education at West Liberty State College. Karissa performed "I Feel Pretty" from the musical West Side Story. Last year she was also Second Runner-up at Miss SEO; she will compete for her first time at Miss Ohio as Miss Scioto Valley, a title she won in November.

A hometown girl attending West Muskingum High School, Sasha Eby was named Third Runner-up. She sang "Forget About The Boy." This past summer Sasha was named the Miss Southeastern Ohio Teen.

Also from Zanesville, Amelia Vincent was named Fourth Runner-up. She attend(s/ed) West Virginia Wesleyan College and sang "On Eagles Wings." Amelia competed last year and won the Spirit Award.
