The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) sponsored a writing contest this school year for all middle school students. About 60 Farristown Middle School 8th graders participated in this contest. Of those entries, Samantha Schodde’s essay claimed first prize in the contest.
In a ceremony at Farristown, Schodde was presented with a certificate, a medal, and a monetary gift from the DAR. Pictured above are Freida Shoemaker, Kate Bartok, and Carol Hehemann, all from DAR, and Samantha Schodde, FTMS student.
