Patriot Pen Winners

On Wednesday morning, April 24th, members of the local VFW (Ed Torreyson, Brooke Van Hulten, and Dennis Mills) awarded students at Chester Boren Middle School for their Patriot Pen Essays. This year’s theme was “Why I Honor the American Flag”. This is an annual essay written by all students at Chester Boren Middle School in which they write a patriotic essay based off of a theme for an opportunity to compete with other essays written by students nationally. This year’s local winners were Shelby Lewis (7th Grade), Matilda Fox (6th Grade), and Gretchen Marriott (8th Grade). Congratulations ladies for your well-written and patriotic essays; and thank you to the local VFW for all of the support they give to our schools and community.
