Junior wins essay contest

By: Staff report

Trey Singleton, a junior at Richmond Senior High School, has won $500 for an essay entered in a statewide contest sponsored by the Lions Club.

Trey recently read his essay at the statewide Lions Club convention in Greensboro, at which he represented the Rockingham club. He will travel to a districtwide Lions meeting in July to be honored again, and to read his essay.

His essay was based on an Alexander Hamilton quotation that says “the people” have the “right to institute government and to reform (it) when their protection, safety, prosperity amid happiness require it.”
