Appreciates coverage

To the Editor: We would like to thank the news media: Corsicana Daily Sun and Gumbo Buster Banner for the great coverage of our event. Elected and appointed officials, community activists, ministers, students, instructors, parents, churches, contest judges, and other community members, our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration was a success because of you.

Special thanks to Mr. Bennie Perry, vice principal of Collins Middle School, for such a dynamic speech. What a powerful message to all of us. Thank you also to Mr. Bennie Perry’s daughters for introducing our speaker, their father.

To the students who participated in the “I Have a Dream” Oratory Contest, you are all winners! Your presentations were awesome. We do appreciate you for participating in the contest. You took the time to learn the speech, stand in front of a large audience and recite the words of Dr. King so beautifully. Thank you again for your participation in the Oratory Contest. We look forward to seeing you in 2013.

Congratulations to our fourth through sixth grad winners: first place, Aniq Chunara of Mildred School District; second place, Garrin Fraze of Bowie Elementary; and third place, Derica Pipkins of Fannin Elementary. Seventh-eighth grade winner: first place, Devon Griffin, Collins Middle School. Tamera White of Corsicana High School was first place winner in the ninth through 12th grade category. There were no second and third place participants in seventh through 12th grades. All participants received certificates.
