So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. ~Matthew 20:16

John Galt Youth Award: Jarren Heward

Posted: 2014-07-04

Legislative District 12 recently selected Jarren Heward of Queen Creek to receive its first John Galt Youth Award.  Pictured with Jarren are Representatives Warren Petersen and Eddie Farnsworth (LD12) and Senate President Andy Biggs (LD12). 

"WHO IS JOHN GALT"?
 

John Galt is a fictional character created by Ayn Rand in her novel Atlas Shrugged. John Galt represents the idea that every person is responsible for themselves and that one’s success is the result of character, hard work, intelligence, and sacrifice. There are many awards for youth based on academics and volunteer work, but few awards are given to our youth who work.

We all know the myriad of values learned in good honest work. Republican Arizona Legislative District 12 created the John Galt Youth Award to identify and recognize employed youth who are modeling a positive attitude and great work ethic. Any LD12 Precinct Committeeman (PC) is free to nominate a youth ages 16-22 years. The youth may be registered with any political party. All candidates are assessed by our youth outreach team. The youth chosen will be awarded with a small gift presented at an LD12 meeting.

Legislative District 12 would like to announce our first recipient of the John Galt Youth Award: Jarren Heward, an 18 year old senior at Queen Creek High School. Jarren has been self-motivated since he was 14. He plans on attending college after two years of volunteer church service. To this end he sought employment to attain his goals. Jarren works as a landscaper on weekends. He also works an average of 30 hours a week at Subway where he has proven his leadership qualities by being promoted to Shift Lead. Jarren is the recipient of a Presidential Scholarship to Arizona State University and an Arizona Excellence Scholarship to University of Arizona ($7,000). Jarren has excelled in Boy Scouts by attaining the rank of Eagle Scout and continues to demonstrate great leadership qualities around his peers.

The award was presented at the LD12 district meeting on February 20, 2014 by District Chairman Mickie Niland. Jarren‘s parents and grandparents were in attendance to support his achievement. Arizona Senator Andy Biggs and Representatives Eddie Farnsworth and Warren Petersen also attended and offered their congratulations to Jarren.
