The Knights of Columbus Council 14255 sponsored a Pro-Life Essay Contest in the month of January, 2012 to coincide with the March for Life and local pro-life events. Grade 7 students were asked write an essay or poem to reflect the general theme of respecting life, including thoughts on abortion, euthanasia, and the role that the Catholic Church plays in promoting a culture of life.
At the school assembly on February 1, 2012 it was announced that Kasey Williams is the winner of this year's contest. Kasey received a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble which was funded by the Knights of Columbus. Her poem was published in the church bulletin.
Other finalists were Katie Beitko, Sara Jackson, Annaliese Micozzi and Chase Bills. In the photo of the presentation, Kasey Williams is wearing #19!
We are very proud of our students who took the time to write. All of the essays and poems were very thoughtful. It is obvious that they understand what is means to be pro-life. The Knights plan to have the contest again next year.
