George Washington Essay winners

On Friday, February 22, 2019, Washington County Schools celebrated George Washington’s birthday with a ceremony honoring our nation’s first president. This celebration was held at the Martha Washington Inn, in Abingdon, Virginia. To kick start the celebration, elementary students were given an opportunity to write an essay about George Washington. The top three Greendale Elementary essay finalists were Jayla A., Alyssa A. and Caden S.

These students went through a rigorous selection process and we are so proud of their accomplishments. We are especially grateful for the academic opportunity Dr. Lentz and Dr. Lester provide our students each year to learn more about our nation’s first president and how our county got its name.
