CANNELTON – A Cannelton student earned a national award for an essay he wrote about why Myers Grade School is unique.
“I was surprised and happy,” Ethan Melton, now a sixth-grader at Cannelton Junior-Senior High School, said Friday. He learned Thursday he had a certified letter at the post office, and his mom, second-grade teacher Laura Melton, said even though his father offered a ride, he couldn’t wait to go pick it up. He rode his bike, instead.
