Congratulations to Melanie Thatcher and Madison Payne as they were honored in Columbus at the Statehouse by Senator Joe Uecker for their winning essays on the "Dangers of Opiates". Cameron Breeze was also an essay contest winner, but he was unable to attend.
The students were accompanied on the trip to Columbus by Adams County Sheriff Kimmy Rogers and Manchester Junior High teachers Mr. Collin Flannery and Mr. Jerod Michael. Upon arrival, students were given a tour of the Statehouse and presented awards in Senator Uecker's office. Next, the students were formally recognized on the Senate floor. When the Senate Session began, Senate President Faber called for "Points of Privilege" where Senator Uecker had the group stand and announced who they were and why they were in attendance.
Congratulations to Melanie Thatcher, Madison Payne, and Cameron Breeze for making MHS proud!
