Elizabeth Ward, a seventh grade student at Delta Middle School, won the Barnes & Noble essay contest with her nomination of Julie Mottern in the "My Favorite Teacher" competition. Students who wished to enter the contest were asked to write a 500-word essay or poem describing how one of their teachers has influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire them.
Elizabeth and Ms. Mottern were honored at the Grand Junction Barnes & Noble on April 16. Derek Carlson, DMS principal, was also in attendance for the award presentation, which was hosted by Laura Mettauer, community relations manager for Barnes & Noble. Mottern received two sets of Illustrated Classics which she donated to the school. Elizabeth's essay will now be entered in the regional competition.
Mettauer also recognized Delta Middle School for submitting several outstanding essays and commended DMS teachers on doing a great job!blog comments powered by Disqus
