The Larchmont Rotary Club honored 6 students from Hommocks Middle School on May 18, all winners of an essay writing competition. This year’s theme of “Taking a Stand,” asked students to think about ways to deal with a situation where he or she had a strongly held belief but had to work with others who had a different belief and had to decide what one should do.
Sixth grade winners were Maya Knowles and Sadie Yoder. Seventh grade winners were Katie Loga and Nadia Suben, who were both 6th grade winners last year! Alex Nagrin and George Povemba were the Eighth grade winners.
For more than 30 years, the Larchmont Rotary has sponsored a writing contest at the Hommocks Middle School, working with the English Department to develop a relevant theme. The Rotary has celebrated the winners each year with an awards luncheon at The Larchmont Yacht Club.
