Claire, Pam and Yvonne were at the Pineview Elementary School on February 17th, 2014 (President’s Day) to award the top three President’s Day essayists. Fourth grader Brianna Nipper received a first-place medal for her essay on Abraham Lincoln. Demetrius Washington was 2nd, an Toni Collier placed third. Toni chose Ronald Reagan because of the 40th president’ interesting life and policy decisions. “Reagan saved a lot of people as a lifeguard,” Toni said. “He also helped with the United States with taxes and bills.” Demetrius Washington, who also wrote about Lincoln, said he was just going to save his winnings. All winners received a cash prize, medals and plaques.
