By STEVEN T. DENNIS
Megan E. Simmons, 13, of Clear Spring, was named Youth of the Month Tuesday by the Washington County Commissioners.
An eighth-grader at Clear Spring Middle School, Megan has been an honor roll student and is president of the Student Senate this year.
"That sounds like a potential County Commissioner candidate in a few years," said County Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook.
Megan thanked the commissioners for the award.
"I feel proud and honored and greatly appreciate it," she said.
She credited the support of teachers and her parents for her success. She said another reason she is doing well is that she cares about the future, and said she wished other students felt the same way.
