Corsicana — Corsicana Noon Lions

The Corsicana Noon Lions Club essay against drugs contest was recently held for area sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. The topic was “The Impact of Drugs and Alcohol on Teenagers.”  

Local judges were Marsha Banks, Amelia Wood, Beverly White, and Marianne Anderson. The judges are all former teachers, now retired.  

First place was won by Jada Wooley, an eighth grader at Collins Catholic School; second place was won by Abbe Smith, another eighth grader at Collins Catholic School; third place was won by Grant Gray, a seventh grader at Mildred Middle School. Gabe Gilfillan, a sixth grader at Drane Intermediate School, also won for the best essay submitted in the sixth grade.  

After placing first in the area, Wooley’s essay was entered into the Lions District 2/3 contest at the midwinter conference in Fairfield, where she placed second and received an additional $150 in that contest.
