Poetry and Remembrance: Wildrose Student Morgan Wood Demonstrates Excellence
Four members of the Shellbrook Legion Branch 111 were out to visit the students at Wild Rose Public School to present an award to one of their students. Helen and Henri Dagenais, Allan Carswell, and Fred Tatler joined the students and staff to congratulate Morgan Wood on her achievement. Morgan, a grade 6 student, penned a poem, for the annual Remembrance Day Poster/Essay & Poem Contest that the Royal Canadian Legion hosts every year. Morgan’s entry, in the Junior division, won 2nd place in the Branch contest, which then moved her onto the Zone competition. Morgan’s poem competed against other communities which include Big River, Canwood, Spears, Duck Lake, Battleford and North Battleford. From here, Morgan’s poem won 3rd place overall!
