Multiple students were honored by the Price City Council on Wednesday evening. Students from Creekview Elementary and an aspiring pharmacist were all honored by the council.
Recently, an essay contest for fourth grade students at Creekview was hosted. As part of the contest, students were asked to write about what they liked about living in Price and the positive aspects of the city.
Multiple students entered the competition and the top four, including Seth Anderson, Cheyanne Slaughter, Lindsey Snow and Jezmin Pressett, were honored by the council. At the meeting, students read their essays aloud for the council and those in attendance.
Each student expressed their favorite things about living in Price City including the scenery, the Desert Wave Pool and the kind people throughout the city.
Members of the council praised the students for their hard work and rewarded their efforts with a gift.
Also at the meeting, another student was honored. Vincent Anella, an aspiring pharmacist, was awarded a $650 scholarship to USU Eastern.
Anella, a Price native, explained that he wishes to attend USU Eastern before moving on to the University of Utah to further his schooling. After completing school, Anella wishes to return to Price to work.
“I want to stay here the rest of my life,” Anella explained about Price City. “It is the center of my universe.”
