Sadler honored for essay

TROY — In spring 2016, Macie Sadler, the daughter of Maurice and Janine Sadler, submitted an essay to a contest that was held for student writers throughout the United States and Canada.

Macie was a freshman at Troy High School at the time of publication.

Macie’s essay, “How My Optimism Will Help Me Press on to Greater Achievements in the Future,” was selected from thousands of entries as one of the ten best in her grade division. The contest was held for students in grades fourth through 12th. The top 10 writers in each division (grades 4—6, 7—9, 10—12) are each receiving special recognition in the essay anthology “Celebrating What Is Important to Me.”

Each top 10 winner receives a complimentary copy of the anthology and a $25 check. Essays are selected for their literary merit, creativity and social significance.
