As part of National Education week, the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce recently held its annual essay contest for area students in 11th and 12th grade. For the second year in a row Gatlyn Troutman placed in the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce National Education Week Essay Contest.
Last year Gatlyn placed first and this year he placed second, just 2/10 of a point shy of first place. Because Gatlyn placed second in the essay contest, he will receive a monetary award and his essay will be published in the December newsletter called the Voice of the Valley, which is inserted once a month into the Daily Item. The December issue was published on December 2, 2013.
Congratulations to Gatlyn!
