School Achievements

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Indiana State Police Superintendent Paul Whitesell, Taylor Moore, Indiana's First Lady Cheri Daniels and Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Suellen Reed.
For the 12th year, the Indiana Troopers Associations (ITA) provided the David Deuter Memorial Essay Contest for fifth grade students across Indiana. The students were invited in January to participate in the program by composing an original essay in approximately 100 words on the subject of "What being a Good Citizen Means to Me."

In this year's program, all 92 Indiana Counties participated in the program which culminated in March. One winner was selected from each participating county and from those county winners a statewide winner and four runner-up were selected. The Statewide winner received a $1,000 US Savings Bond, while Runners-up received $750 in bonds. All remaining county winners were awarded a $500 bond by the association. In addition award winners received, "You Make a Difference" Certificates from Governor Mitch Daniels, engraved plaques, a "Respect for Law" Camp scholarship and other gifts. Many of the county awards were presented by area Indiana State Police Officers at end of year Awards Programs at the winner's school.

On June 13, all county winners, their families, school officials, and legislators, were invited to the Indiana State House for the Statewide Awards Program. Taylor Moore, daughter of Amy and Steve Moore, was among the winners. She attended Van Buren Elementary and is starting North Clay in August.
