State Essay second place winner at Palm Pointe

Seventh grade students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition recently participated in a state-wide essay contest sponsored by the Florida League of Cities and Florida League of Mayors. This was endorsed by both Mayor Faiella of Port St. Lucie and Mayor Hudson of Fort Pierce.  Palm Pointe is very  excited to announce that out of more than 1,500 state-wide entries, team Apollo’s Isaiah Thermilus’ essay earned a second place finish.  Each essay had to respond to the prompt “If I were elected mayor…” and Isaiah wrote about what he would do to make our city a better place. As the second place winner, Isaiah will receive a $50 gift card and an award to be presented by our mayor at a hometown commission meeting.  Pictured is Isaiah as he proudly shows his certificate for second place for the state.  Great Job Isaiah!
