November 15, 2017 - The Family and Consumer Sciences and Art classes at Timpson High School recently participated in the Holiday Mail for Heroes project. Students wrote messages to the military that will be delivered during the holiday season. Local veterans judged the messages and chose the top ten that were then narrowed down to first, second and third place winners. The winners were 1st place-Connor LaVoie, 2nd place-Jaycee Campbell, and 3rd place-Madenline Binning. The messages are included below.
1st place-Connor LaVoie
Dear Service Member,
I would like to wish you happy holidays! Thank you for defending our country. I pray that you will be safe and succeed in your mission. I understand that war is a scary thing, so I also pray that God will be with you and that you know that you are being protected. I hope that you will come home to family and friends unharmed and maybe even in time for the holidays. Again, thank you for your service. We are all praying for you.
2nd place-Jaycee Campbell
Dear Service Member,
Just saying “thank you” isn’t enough for your sacrifice and dedication. So I’m sending prayers, hugs and well wishes to you for the holidays. Your bravery and service is more than we can ask for. Words can’t explain how important your service is to our country. We are praying that God watches over you and your family. Our nation is honored to have you serving and we want you to know that we love you!
3rd place-Madenline Binning
