Must Read

The Optimist Club of Greater Vienna recently awarded prizes to three local high-school students as part of Optimist International’s annual youth-essay contest.

Students were asked to write an essay on the topic, “How an Optimistic Mindset Changes My Tomorrow.”

“I look forward to this essay contest every year, because I love seeing first-hand how talented the students are at conveying their optimism about the future,” said Dan Irvine, who chairs the essay contest for the club.

Nate Goss, a freshman at James Madison High School, took first place and a $1,000 award. Mayra Rios, a junior at Madison, garnered second place and $600. Angel Samsuhadi, a senior at George C. Marshall High School, tallied third place and a $400 award.


Goss’s essay moves on to district competition, with scholarship funds provided to winners.
