Congratulations to Leman Middle School seventh grader, Yarely H., who won second prize ($1000.00) in the Lations In Action national essay writing contest.
Yarely read her essay, a celebration of what being a part of the West Chicago community means to her, during the virtual LIA National Conference hosted by Leman Middle School. The event was live streamed to schools in Colorado, New York, Connecticut, and Iowa.
LIA students participated in virtual leadership workshops and listened to a keynote address from Dr. Miguel Cardona, the U.S. Secretary of Education. The Ballet Folklorico performed throughout the conference.
D33 is proud of all of the students who participated in this great celebration of leadership!
