Kyle and Paul Essay Winner

In September, the Odin Healthcare Center sponsored an essay writing contest. In the spirit of Grandparent's Day,  the title of the contest and the essay was, "How do your grandparents inspire you?" 

Students in JH and HS were challenged to participate and we had over 30 submissions by the deadline. 

Kyle Friend, HS senior, was chosen today as the winner of the essay contest! He takes home, a plaque and a $100 VISA gift card just in time for the holidays. 

He is pictured here receiving his awards from Odin Healthcare's Director of Business Development, Paul Polanski. 

Thank you to the Healthcare Center for sponsoring this contest, to the students for their amazing submissions, and our teachers and staff who helped students edit and revise their essays. 

Congratulations Kyle!
