McClatchy Students among Essay Contest Finalists
C.K. McClatchy High School seniors Tiffany Chan and Lark Trumbly are among the finalists in the Sacramento Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility 2012 High School Scholarship Essay Contest. The writing prompt for the contest was a quote from former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis: “We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” Students will present their essays at a dinner on Sunday and winners will be selected. First-place prize is $3,000.
