Three Students Awarded for Essays on Booker T. Washington

The Kiwanis Club of Historic Newburgh awarded three students a monetary award for their essay on the life of Booker T. Washington.

Students from Castle North Middle School's eighth grade class participated.

Students were given a history book of Booker T. Washington's life and were then asked to write an essay that expressed their understanding of his life and the obstacles he faced. They were then asked to apply how he became a success to their own life and future.

Aditi Patel took first place. Paige Renschler took second place. Katherine Tessendorf took third place.
