Kennedy Woods, 19, of Centralia, was crowned Miss Lewis County 2017 on Saturday at R.E. Bennett Elementary School Auditorium in Chehalis.

Woods, a student from Centralia College, sang a classical vocal rendition of "Via Dolorosa" for her talent and wore a long, bright red dress for the evening gown portion of the pageant.

Woods, a 2016 graduate of Centralia High School and owner of The Beehive Salon, noted that her platform for the pageant was promoting a positive body image.

First runner-up this year was Jennifer Swenson, a student from Centralia College.
