Maryville Native Crowned Miss Tennessee USA




Miss Davidson County Savana Hodge was recently crowned Miss Tennessee Austin Peay State University.

Hodge said she plans to use her title as a continuation of her personal goal and vision of sharing her platform “Our Time is Now.”

“This is such an unique opportunity that really is unlike any other,” Hodge said.

The Nashville resident and Maryville native said “timing is everything” and she believes all of her past experiences have prepared her to be the voice of Tennessee through her new role. During her time at Belmont University, Hodge said she was involved in an eclectic group of organizations which gave her well-rounded social and professional experiences. Hodge prides herself on setting goals and achieving them, but she emphasizes that she has gotten to this point because of the encouragement and support of her family. She now works as an operations analyst at a world renowned engineering firm in Nashville.

Hodge plans to focus her volunteer efforts around helping children through the Make a Wish Foundation among other local organizations.

“It’s our time to show up, it’s our time to be kind, and it’s our time to dream big,” she said.
