American Legion Middle School Essay Contest – OLMC Winners!
Last fall, Mrs. Peters’ 8th grade students wrote essays as we prepared for our Military Appreciation Day. Today we were privileged to have two Commanders from the American Legion at OLMC to present awards. Our students did extraordinarily well, taking all three places at the post level: Erica won 1st, John placed 2nd, and Leila took 3rd for Post 25; Post Commander Sean Devlin presented these students with their award. Commander Devlin then submitted Erica’s essay to the District along with winners from 13 other Posts. The 3rd District Commander, Rich Ward presented Erica with the 1st place prize for the District. Erica’s essay now advances to the State competition on Friday. Congratulations to our 8th graders and to Mrs. Peters who helped them prepare their essays!February 26, 2019 by Sr. Anna Joseph in Study
