            A local student's award-winning essay on why she is proud of her military family is on display at an exhibit on Capitol Hill this week as part of July 4th celebrations in Washington. 17-year-old Linzee Burcham, a recent Kodiak High School graduate, took first place in the eleventh and twelfth grade category of The Armed Services YMCA's Annual Essay and Art Contest in May.

            Burcham, the daughter of U.S. Coast Guardsman Terry Burcham and Jody Carman, wrote about a story her father once told her of a night rescue he performed in Hawaii in her winning essay. In the essay, she wrote, "I am astonished by all the stories I have heard growing up."

            Burcham's piece is currently being displayed along with the 25 other winning essays in the U.S. Senate's Russell Rotunda in an exhibit sponsored by U.S. Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin. Burcham received a 1,000-dollar U.S. savings bond for her winning essay. In May she said she will put the earnings toward college tuition. A three-sport, standout athlete at Kodiak High School, Burcham plans to attend the University of Alaska Anchorage, where she will run track, in the fall.
