Chattahoochee Tech student Melissa Moreno, of Cobb County, was announced as the winner of the college’s 2019 U.S. Constitution essay contest in a ceremony held at the North Metro Campus on Friday, Oct. 18. Veteran Services Coordinator Barry Munday also announced that Chattahoochee Tech students Jennifer Onunekwu, of Cobb County, and Ainsley Armstrong, of Paulding County, were the top two runners-up in the essay contest.
Cobb County Superior Court Judge Reuben Green served as a judge in the college’s essay contest and attended the awards presentation ceremony. “I was very impressed with each of these essays,” said Green. “The fact that students like these are willing to write about something as important as the U.S. Constitution really is very powerful, and gives me a lot of hope for our future.”
As the winner of the essay contest, Moreno received a $500 campus bookstore gift card. She and the top two runners-up also each received a certificate and a framed copy of the U.S. Bill of Rights.
