Tip of the Hat to Work, Ammons

By Staff | Aug 17, 2016

Two native sons deserve a tip of the hat.

Julian Work and Creed Ammons were recently recognized by the state’s Elks leaders as Teen of the Year and Junior Teen of the Year, respectively. Though other students from Tyler County have earned this prestigious honor in the past, the county has never had two students win such honors at the same time. Work was active in multiple groups before he graduated as a valedictorian in June from Tyler Consolidated High School. Ammons was a high achiever at Tyler Consolidated Middle School whose academic and athletic prowess indicate he will continue on an upward trajectory as a Silver Knight. These two teens beat several other worthwhile contenders across the state to win scholarships.

As Work strives to build a future at WVU and Ammons at TCHS, the values that created their success will continue to serve as an example to others and show why Tyler County is a good place to raise children.
