COLUMBUS—Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) presented a resolution to Dinaleigh Baxter, of Adams County, during today's session of the Ohio Senate honoring her for being named Miss Ohio 2017. 

"Dinaleigh's success is a testament to her hard work and dedication over many years," Uecker said. "Today, I'd like to commend Ms. Baxter for representing her community and state so well and to wish her continued success in her future endeavors."

A graduate of North Adams High School, the 24-year-old plans to continue her education at Northern Kentucky University Chase College of Law in the fall. Baxter's list of accomplishments includes founding her own charity, Sisters and Brother Helping Others, as well as owning her own software company, Sonic LLC, based in Austin, Texas. She largely credits her success to her small town upbringing in Winchester, Ohio.

Baxter recently visited her high school alma mater to share her message and outlook on life with a group of junior high students. In her speech, she discussed her platform, which is about believing in one's self and not letting outside factors determine your value and worth.
