Our own Will Matthews won 1st place for the Eastern Division Essay Contest "Why I am Proud to be an American," he was also awarded a $100 gift card.
The 8th Grade Class submitted essays in late Fall in American History 8. They were to write in 350 words or less on "Why I am Proud to be an American." Will's essay is now being reviewed at the National level, where only 18 National Awards will be given out.
The essay contest is sponsored by the Fleet Reserve Association (FRA) and Matthews was invited to read his essay at the branch meeting on July 14th at the Fleet Reserve Club in Annapolis. Congratulations Will for your hard work!
