Six area high school students were recognized earlier this month by the Camarillo Noontime Optimist Club for penning outstanding essays on the topic “How my education is the key to a successful future.” The teens, who competed against 50 of their peers, included Nathan Sullivan, Sne Kanji, Erik Pinuelas and Stephany Vazquez, all from Rio Mesa High School, and Rebecca Myper and Bailey Rossi of Camarillo High School. The six finalists, shown with the club’s essay contest chairman, Mike Kroll, read their essays to club members before receiving trophies, awards and gifts.
