(Chadron)-A student at Chadron’s Primary School was selected as the winner of the Hometown Hero essay contest, and she and her hero were recognized earlier this week at a ceremony in Scottsbluff. 
Chadron Primary Principal Lou Alcorn shared the exciting news on her blog this week at chadronschools.org. According to Alcorn, Eliana Uhing, daughter of Libby Uhing, a second grade teacher at Chadron Primary School and Willy Uhing, a Chadron High School English teacher, was designated as a winner of a Hometown Hero Contest sponsored by Region I in Scottsbluff.  
The letter that she wrote about her hometown hero, Officer Aron Chrisman, who is the Chadron Public School's Resource Officer, describes how Chrisman helps people. Uhing said that Chrisman will help if someone breaks into your house, makes her laugh, and goes to see the kids at recess.  She said she also trusts Chrisman, and he makes her feel safe.
Uhing and "her" hometown hero were honored at a banquet at the Scottsbluff Elks Club on Tuesday, November 19th.  Alcorn expressed her congratulations to both Uhing and Chrisman for the recognition.
