Student wins essay contest

Austin Muhelman, a student at Central Kitsap High School and Olympic College, was recently announced as an essay winner.

The Capt. John Paul Jones Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) recognizes the student who reads his essay describing freedom and slavery as a double standard as it relates to the American Revolutionary War.

The contest is designed to give high school students an opportunity to explore events, topics, ideals, philosophies and individuals who shaped American history.

The SAR is a male lineage society whose members have traced their heritage to a direct descendant of a patriot who fought or gave aid toward America’s Independence, an educational, historical and patriotic, non-profit corporation.
