Plymouth Whitemarsh High School freshman Emma Manley recently received a $200 scholarship for placing fourth in the nation in the 9-11 grade division of the Four Chaplains Memorial Foundation National Student Scholarship Competition. Students were asked to use their creativity to detail the meaning of "selfless service."
Emma submitted a drawing depicting a service man saluting the USS Arizona memorial at sunset.
