Madison Senior Center Essay Reading and Ice Cream Social

May 8, 2015 1:42 PM

In honor of Older Americans Month, the Madison Senior Center held their annual Essay Reading and Ice Cream Social. Madison Senior Center Director Christine Beatty and Madison Metropolitan School District Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham kicked off the event. Eight talented sixth graders from Madison middle schools were selected by each of Madison's four Senior Coalitions for their outstanding essays detailing just a few of the many reasons why they love their grandparents. Congratulations to Melina Nguyen from Whitehorse Middle School, the citywide winner, who wrote her essay on her grandma being the biggest kid she knows!
