Jayden Egecrone of East Coweta Middle School was recently recognized by VFW Post 2667 for placing first on the school level and third on the post level in the annual Patriot’s Pen Essay Contest. She received certificates, a medal and a cash prize, and her essay will advance for judging at the district level. Egecrone competed with 64 students from six middle schools with her essay on “What Patriotism Means to Me.” Pictured from left are Amanda Knopp, teacher; John Skinner, Senior Vice Commander of VFW Post 2667; Egecrone; and Jeannette Hallam, ECMS Principal.
