At the Mar 11 Zoom meeting, Essay Committee Chair introduced the top 3 essayists from TAHS who wrote essays for the Rotary Essay contest.  The theme for this year’s essay contest was “How can you personally take the opportunity to protect the environment?”. The students were instructed that each essay should address how they personally can be a person of action to protect the environment, working as an individual, or as the prime mover and leader of a group project.
Third place went to Emma Moran, who is the editor of the high school newspaper, the Prowler, and plans to study astronomy in college.
