Three students from Geneseo High School received $400 each as winners of Geneseo Rotary Club’s Constitution Project.   

   Geneseo High School juniors and seniors were invited to write an essay on the subject, “What the Constitution Means to Me and My Family.” Twenty-five students submitted essays. Winners were Rachel Ganson, Jenna Reddig, and Emilee Livesay.

   Rotary Club member Bill Neuleib spearheaded the project. The 47-year club member said he got the idea while reading an article in a spring issue of the Rotarian magazine. A club in Milan, Ohio was doing the Constitution project. “I thought it was an ideal project for our club,” Neuleib said. “I contacted the man who chaired their project and received good information in order to proceed with our project.”

   Neuleib and club members agree, they were very happy with having so many students participate the first year the project was offered in Geneseo. Neuleib said, “I attribute this many entries to the great cooperation we were given by the high school. Along with the excellent content of the essays, I am confident our club will do this project again.”

  Ganson, Reddig, Livesay, and their families were guests at Geneseo Rotary Club’s lunch meeting on Tuesday, November 13. The students each read their essay for the club members and were presented with a check for their accomplishments. Each essay is included below.
