Marin Takes Top Prize in the “If I Were Mayor” Essay Contest

Emily Marin with Fayetteville Mayor Ken Steele

The City of Fayetteville recently offered students an opportunity to state what they would do if they were mayor. One student’s ideas stood above the rest, earning her a special recognition.

The Fayetteville City Council recognized Emily Marin, a sixth grade student at Fayette Middle School, on April 16 for writing the winning essay that outlined her ideas for improving the city’s community. Her suggestions include sponsoring a “Go Green” fair to educate families about the benefits of adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle, organizing volunteer-ran study clubs to assist low-income students whose families cannot afford private tutoring and hosting a Spring Fling to raise funds for the study club and the city’s other volunteer programs.

In addition to the recognition, she was awarded four free concert tickets to Fayetteville’s amphitheater.
