To the editor;
Megan Worthington was truly a rising star.
When I first got to know Megan she was a candidate for the Fall Fair pageant. She was an extremely quiet and shy young lady. As the sound technician for the Pageant, I had to turn the microphone way up to catch her voice and then turn it back down for the other candidates. As the program progressed, she improved dramatically; more so than any other in the years that I have watched. At one time there had been a title called ‘Most Improved’, however, that title had lapsed a few years before. I and Robin Wilson suggested its renewal with Robin suggesting its name be changed to Rising Star. This title, which is ongoing, thus owes its founding to Megan as its inspiration.
I for one will miss her and the community will be the poorer for her passing.
