Fourth grader Winston Hebert, son of Mike and Gigi Hebert, and seventh grader Wesley Young, son of Tim and Kelly Young, presented their winning papers to the ladies of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas on Tuesday, April 10th, at their monthly luncheon. Both the fourth and seventh grade classes participated in this year’s Texas history essay contests; Winston’s essay featured interesting facts and anecdotes about hunter and Texas Ranger “Bigfoot” Wallace, and Wesley’s recounted the events leading up the famous 18-minute Battle of San Jacinto that won Texas her freedom from Mexico on April 21, 1836.
We are very proud of these young men and their accomplishments. It’s always nice when our students’ hard work is recognized. Congratulations again, Winston and Wesley!
