The Lake Conroe Area Republican Women hold an essay contest each year for local 5th grade students. The title of the essay is “My American Hero”. This year, Keenan students took home top honors.
Anna Bowers was the 1st place winner for Keenan Elementary American Hero Essay, sponsored by the Montgomery County Republican Women. She wrote about her dad, Buster Bowers, a loved member of the community who died suddenly last year. It was a moving tribute and very well written.
Alaina Sydnor was Keenan’s 2nd place winner with her essay describing Bethany Hamilton. Alaina wrote movingly about how Bethany’s perseverance and faith when she lost an arm in a shark attack were inspiring to her. Nathan Newton also placed 3rd with his inspiring essay.
