Feigl wins local essay contest

San Marcos Academy freshman Sean Feigl, son of Wendy and Christian Feigl of San Marcos, wrote the winning essay in a contest sponsored by the William Hightower Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.

The William Hightower SAR Chapter, which serves Comal, Hays, Guadalupe, Caldwell and Blanco counties, holds the Knight Essay Contest each year for students in grades 9-12. The theme for this year’s contest was an event, person, philosophy or idea based upon the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence or the framing of the U.S. Constitution.

Winning essays from the chapter-level contests are submitted to the state contest. Those winners then have a chance to compete for a $5,000 grand prize on the national level.

Feigl was invited to read his essay on the Second Amendment to members of the William Hightower SAR at their March meeting, where he received a $100 check and the Outstanding Citizenship Pin for his efforts. Chapter representatives Stu Hoyt and Joe Cox also presented a certificate to Feigl during a school assembly at San Marcos Academy.
