Partnership With Education Winners Recognized At School Board Meeting

Tuesday afternoon the Jackson County School Board meeting room was at standing room only. The Jackson County Times staff members Liz Jackson and Stephanie Parker were on hand to announce the six division winners and one overall winner for the 2013 Partnership With Education Writing Contest. Excited students, proud parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers and principals were on hand for the event. Each school winner was recognized, as well as the winner from the home school / private school division. Each essay was about the necessity of reporting possible crimes to the proper authorities. Each division winner received a recognition certificate and a check for $200. The over-all winner received $500. also.

The overall 2013 Jackson County Times / Crimestoppers Partnership With Education Writing Contest Winner was Storm Floyd from Malone School. Storm is in the 8th grade at Malone. Principal Doug Powell and Toyka Holden, Malone School Language Arts teacher, were both on hand to congratulate him on a job well done. Storm is the son of Jamey and Kim Floyd of Malone. Storm's younger brother Spencer was there to support him and to think that, with a lot of hard work, he may one day win the same honor.

The awards are annual, and are a partnership between the Jackson County TIMES and the Crimestoppers of Jackson County.
