On Oct. 7, Sts. Joachim and Ann School announced that student Meghan Baumann was the winner of the school’s PTO Essay Scholarship for the year of 2020.
Every year, the school’s seventh grade class is asked to write an essay summarizing what they have learned and how they have served during their time at Sts. Joachim & Ann.
The essays are submitted to be reviewed anonymously and then the PTO members and various teachers score the essays; the student who writes the winning essay gets a $500 scholarship towards their eighth-grade year. However, due to complications caused by COVID-19, the contest was delayed slightly.
In early October, Baumann was declared the winner of the class. She is completing her ninth year at Sts. Joachim and Ann School.
