THSC Congratulates Laurel Robinson

Laurel Robinson

THSC would like to congratulate Junior American Citizen Laurel Robinson, a home school sophomore, on winning first place in the state of Texas for the Christopher Columbus Essay Contest sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF)! The title of the essay is, “How Did the Faith and Courage of Christopher Columbus Give to Mankind a New World?”

Laurel recently traveled to Houston to the DAR State Convention to receive her award. Approximately 191 Junior American Citizen chapters participated, with some chapters submitting more than 100 entries. The annual contest is open to students in grades 9-12. Laurel’s essay will go on to nationals for a possible scholarship opportunity and a trip to Washington D.C.

Thank you, Laurel, for representing our home school chapter of Junior American Citizens with an awesome essay!
