A Gateway High School student received $500 for her winning emblem design for the municipality’s new Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System, or MS4, fund.

Kaitlyn Waros, a senior, was awarded the college scholarship money at Monroeville’s February council meeting. She posed for a photograph with Monroeville Mayor Nick Gresock.

Councilman Ron Harvey, the chair of the municipality’s MS4 committee, said 13 students from the high school’s art department participated in a competition to design the program’s emblem.

“We talked to all the kids and educated them about MS4,” Harvey said. “We told them about other communities that have done this around the country to get them ideas of what others have done. We just told them not to duplicate the other emblems.”

Council approved an ordinance in October that allows the municipality to fee property owners annually to fund flood control projects. The fund is expected to raise $3.2 million this year.

Council members Greg Erosenko and Eric Poach served as judges, along with two Gateway teachers.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
