It was recently announced by the chapter’s DAR Good Citizen committee chair, Patricia Moseman, that Abraham Lamoreaux won the essay contest and was presented a $100 recognition award from the chapter.

Abraham’s parents, Bob and Robyn Lamoreaux, and school counselor, Denise Wallman, were present for the announcement. He now advances forward to compete in the Utah State Society DAR competition.

Last year’s chapter winner, high school senior Pyper Schmutz from Snow Canyon High School, was named the Utah State Society DAR winner.

This makes two years in a row that seniors from Snow Canyon High School have won local chapter recognition and advanced to the state level.

The 2019 state winner will be announced in April at the Utah State Society’s annual conference in Salt Lake City.
