Patriot's Pen Winner!

FRA eighth-grader Adam earned second-place honors in the First District for the Patriot's Pen Youth Essay Award Citation, sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The First District consists of Lake and Porter Counties as well as the western and northwestern townships of LaPorte County! Adam received a pin and a check for $200 from the VFW. While we have had numerous winners in the local competition, we believe Adam is the first FRA student to place in the First District. Congratulations Adam!
