March for our Veterans, our country and your freedom!

Posted: Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Liza Grossman Memorial Day Essay Contest winner.

GRAFTON- Taylor County Middle School (TCMS) student Liza Grossman won the Memorial Day Essay Contest held in Amanda Smith-Stolzenfels’ eighth grade English class in April.

A portion of Liza’s essay reads, “Memorial Day is a time to remember those people who spent their last moments fighting for us, no matter how hot or uncomfortable they were. If they could do that, why can’t we attend a one-hour parade to honor them?”

“For those who think they are too good, or the Memorial Day Parade is “lame,” please refrain from attending and disappointing those who have given so much. For the students in school, give the Memorial Day Parade a second chance. Please stand up and march for Our Veterans, Our Country and Your Freedom! – Kim Shahan
