Timothy Christian Middle School students again dominated the VFW awards ceremony held on Sunday, February 3. Gabrielle Williams took first place, with Raquel Paz and Marta Veenstra taking 2nd place and Noelle Ellingsen receiving 5th place cash award. The theme this year was “Why I Honor the American Flag.” The students did a great job! Our local post, located in Villa Park, had an awards presentation followed by a pizza and dessert party for all the winners and the runner up students.
The students pictured are Raquel Paz, Gabrielle Williams, Elizabeth Carlson, Marta Veenstra, Jadyn Hogue, Maddie Drye, Lily Gamble, Ian Holder, and Zyaire Miller. 8th grade teacher Mrs. Judy Sytsma also attended and is the proud teacher teacher pictured in the back row. Not pictured but also receiving either an award or an honorable mention are Noelle Ellingsen, Cameron Baker, Promise Obazuaye, Sadie Orange, Maggie Rhoads, and Ian Sianghio.
Congratulations to all!
