Fuqua Middle School participated in the Veterans of Foreign Wars essay contest, the Patriot's Pen. Students completed an essay topic entitled, "America's Gift to My Generation". Shannon Coleman (6th grade) placed first, Macon Landis (8th grade) was awarded second, and Chandler Wright (7th grade) came in third, at the VFW Post level. Landis has since advanced through the post and regional levels to the state level. He will be reading his essay to the VFW Department, with hopes of moving on to the national level. Congratulations, Macon, Shannon, and Chandler!
