7th graders Mark Hannaman and Alexis Hall were chosen as student finalists to represent Buna Jr. High School for the "Do the Write Thing Challenge." Over 2,000 essays were submitted this year in which many compelling stories and solutions to the problem of violence were shared. There is a Region V boy and girl student finalists chosen from each campus. These students, along with their parents, teachers and school principal will be invited to an awards banquet on Monday, April 24th in Beaumont.
Alexis Hall was also chosen as the girl Ambassador for our region! Along with her parents and teacher, Mrs. Teri Wolfe, will be invited to attend the "Do the Write Thing Challenge" National Recognition Week in Washington DC July 22-26, 2017. They will attend a special recognition ceremony at Union Station where many important people and sponsoring celebrities speak about the importance of ending violence. There is a dinner at the Kuwait Cultural Center, and a special tour of the Supreme Court and Capitol Hill where they will meet with our Congressman.
Mrs. Wolfe writes, "This will be an experience Alexis will remember for the rest of her life. She is the perfect student to represent not only our district, but our region as well. I am looking forward to being a part of National Recognition Week for the second time as a teacher. I'm thrilled that a student from Buna Jr. High was chosen as a National Ambassador and I am very proud of both Mark and Alexis for being chosen as finalists!"
