Bittner honored for essay

Miss Kylie Bittner, a senior at Meyersdale Area High School, has been recognized as this area’s Voice of Democracy essay winner. Bitter wrote a compelling and thoughtful essay based on the theme - “What Makes America Great?” She received $100 from the MAHS Student Council for her efforts.  She is seen above with Mr. John Wiltrout, Meyersdale Area High School principal. Bittner’s speech has advanced to the district level, thanks to officers of the Salisbury VFW, Post 8826, who were kind enough to submit it on Meyersdale's behalf.
