— The Moffat County School District Board of Education took time during its regular meeting Thursday to honor an MCHS senior.

Rose Howe recently took fourth in the state for her entry in the Voice of Democracy contest sponsored by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Howe wrote and recorded a broadcast script on a patriotic theme. She chose to address why the United States Constitution is still relevant today.

Howe addressed the board and administration Thursday, reading her entry to a standing ovation.

Howe spoke about how the Constitution is vital to maintaining a free and equal nation and ensuring our welfare in the future.

“It is as relevant now as it was upon its ratification because we have the right to amend the document to fit our needs, so it will always be a document by the people and for the people,” Howe said. “It is neither transient nor fleeting.”

Howe’s father accompanied her to Thursday’s meeting, and before leaving he thanked the board and administrators for their continued time and effort to help the kids in the community.
