Three eighth grade GT students from Jordan MS were awarded with cash prizes as part of the national VFW Patriot Pen essay contest on December 5. The theme of this year’s contest was, “What would I tell the Founding Fathers.” Through Mrs. Pohovich’s and Mrs. Todora’s GT class, each student researched the contributions of our nation’s Founding Fathers and wrote a 300 - 400 word essay. Beverly Nystrom was the winner from Post 9603. Her essay was sent on to the District 20 competition, where it was selected as the winner. Her paper is now entered in the state level competition. Lexus Wilson was the first place winner from VFW Post 9174. Kassidy Acosta also placed for Post 9603.
