Emily Morris, a fourth Grade Student from Silex R-1 School, Mrs. Cox’s Classroom, won first place in the Lincoln County Association for Family & Community Education Council’s Artwork/Essay Contest on the word “Respect.” 

Her Artwork/Essay will move on to District and maybe State/National Level. Lydia Jaspering won second and Emmalee Gray third. They are from Mrs. Clarkson’s fourth Grade Class at Sacred Heart Parrish School in Troy. 

The fourth grade students had to draw a picture of the Character Counts! Word “Respect” and then write a story, of 50 words, about the picture. Peggy Jost, Chairman of the Lincoln County FCE 4th Grade Contest, presented the awards to the students. “Responsibility” is the Character Counts! word for the 2020-2021 school and opens up in September of 2020 for all fourth Grade Students in Lincoln County. Vivian Cody, President of Lincoln County FCE Council presided over the meeting. Mary McCann gave the thought for the day, The Perfect Pattern. Each FCE member received a 2020 FCE Council Program Book for the year. 

April 29 is the East Central District FCE Spring Meeting and the group made plans, as Lincoln County will host the meeting this year.
