A Hood River Valley High School sophomore recently won second place in a statewide essay contest.
Mercedez “Sadie” Dallman has been awarded a red ribbon by the League of Oregon Cities (LOC) for her “If I Were Mayor, I Would…” entry. Her writing was also ranked first in a local contest because it portrayed an “in-depth understanding” of a public official’s role.
Hood River Mayor Linda Rouches was pleased to see Dallman’s writing displayed at the LOC convention in Eugene.
“Sadie had a maturity in her essay that came through very clearly,” said Rouches.
Dallman submitted her essay as part of an English class assignment at HRVHS.
“Mayors can make decisions for the whole town, and I think that’s pretty cool,” Dallman said.
Dallman is the daughter of Peter and Lynda Dallman of Hood River. She said she has no plans to pursue a career in politics.
