CCTA recently co-sponsored an Essay Contest entitled
Booker T. Washington – American Hero Essay Contest.
Our essay winner was Christina Bryant, a sixth-grade student at Grover C. Fields.
Her essay was unanimously selected as the best by our (CCTA) panel of judges.
Booker T. Washington championed moral character, personal responsibility, a practical education, and economic opportunity.
He understood the vital role that character plays in education, in fact, the vital role of character in achieving success in any worthwhile enterprise.
His life story, rising from great adversity to great achievement, stands in timeless testimony to the power of character for all young Americans today.
