Colin Cattell, a junior at Palmyra High School, has won a full scholarship to attend the Colonial Dames Congressional Seminar in Washington D.C. Since 1977 The National Patriotic Service Committee of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America has conducted an annual national essay contest. This year's topic was "Why was the division of power between the President and Senate to nominate and confirm a Supreme Court Justice created by our founding fathers?" Colin wrote a response to the essay prompt which challenged students to reflect on the division of power between the executive and legislative branches of our government. Colin's closing argument ended with, "The founding fathers clearly proposed a government where power was divided, denying itself the prospect of becoming imperious. They believed that the rights of the outnumbered must be protected and that tyranny is greatest threat to the rights and liberties of the American people." Colin has a keen interest in government and politics, which will enable him to represent Palmyra High School in a distinguished manner this summer.
The Writers’ Café members of Palmyra High School entered the 2017 Wee Authors Publishing Contest for poetry, and five members were selected to have their poems published in the 2017 Wee Authors Book. This is a national publishing contest. The purpose of the contest is to inspire students’ interest in reading and writing. A free copy of the book will be donated to the school library. Mrs. Wallace is the Club Advisor.
