Preregistration for the race can be found at the library’s website gclibrary- foundation.org. The cost is $20 without Ashley a T-shirt, but shirt orders Armichardy can be placed by contacting a library foundation board member. Race day registration is at 8 a.m. with the race beginning at 9 a.m. at 125 NW Canton, near the Kam Wah Chung Interpretive Cen- ter (not the museum), which is the site of the new library. The course will loop around the Seventh Street Complex, to Prospector Trail, then back to the start. “This fun run is to help with our capital campaign,” said Ashley Armichardy, who is the Library Foundation secretary. “It’s an ongoing effort to raise funds for a new library for Grant County and learn more about opportunities to help. The ground there is ours, and it’s ready to dig. We just need the funds.” The fundraiser will beneﬁ t the capital campaign and summer reading program for awards. “We envision the new library to bring more programming, more room for more books and dedicated spaces for quiet book reading and dedicated children’s area,” Armichardy said.

By Angel Carpenter Blue Mountain Eagle Trinity Hutchison graduated from Grant Union High School earlier this month and will continue her education and athletic career this fall at Treasure Valley Commu- nity College in Ontario. Hutchison has earned many athletic med- als in high school sports. One historic achievement came in Febru- ary this year when she won the 1A-6A state champion wrestling title in the 155 bracket in the ﬁ rst girls tournament. She also was the 2A state champion in the triple jump event in May 2017, her sophomore year, and she and the Grant Union Prospector volleyball team won the 2A state championship during her junior year in November 2017. Before taking on wrestling this school year, Hutchison was also a member of the Prospector basketball team, which earned fourth place in March of 2018 her junior year. Hutchison was offered multiple schol- arships throughout the country for all four sports, but she chose to stay close to home. She received TVCC scholarships for indoor and outdoor track, a TVCC Foun- dation Scholarship and a Grant Union FFA Alumni Scholarship. She also tried out for the TVCC Chukar volleyball team in spring and was selected for the team. She expressed appreciation for her fam- ily, teammates and volleyball and track coaches, including the late John Houk, who was the assistant coach over the long jump and triple jump events for the Prospectors. Hutchison, who was the Grant County Fair and Rodeo Queen last year and prin- cess in 2017, plans to study horse produc- tion and agriculture business.
