Mrs. Williams announced today that the winner of the essay contest for Native American Heritage Month is sophomore, Brooke Nancekivell, and the honorable mention goes to Dominique Vines, also a sophomore.
In her essay, Brooke states, “Pain connects us, despite race, wealth, culture, or community. Their common heritage and culture, including their previous persecution, bond them with pain, heartache, sickness, but more importantly, joy and love, and understanding.”
Dominique writes, “The call of duty can be defined as the pull on a person to serve and defend the land which he holds dear. This policy does not just apply to the United States. The call of duty can be heard in all countries of the world that have denizens willing to protect the land they call home.”
Congratulations to both Brooke and Dominique!
This month’s essay contest focuses on Jewish literature. See the related book display in the main area of the library for more information.
