Alyssa Hammock, pictured with her award winning essay, was the first place winner in the 6th through 8th grade writing contest. Our VFW chose her essay “Why I Honor the Flag” to represent as the local level winner. This is the first step of a four level VFW national competition. Congratulations to Alyssa on this proud accomplishment!
Additionally, congrats to Mrs. Leslie Sutton for winning the middle school “Teacher of the Year” portion of the contest as well!
