Brookwood students DAR essay winners

THOMASVILLE — Three Brookwood School fifth graders are winners in the Thomas County Daughters of the American Revolution Essay Contest.

Brewer Anderson won first place, Mary Dodys is the second-place winner and Clara Clifton placed third.

“Each fall, Brookwood fifth grade students tackle their very first research paper through this DAR venue,” said Marsha Noah, one of their teachers. “It is a massive four-week project that includes extensive research, planning, drafting, revising multiple drafts, composing a bibliography and finally, typing their final draft.”

This year’s essay topic, “As a child of the American Revolution, explain how the war directly affected and changed your life,” is a good fit for Brookwood’s “Why America is Free” unit and annual “Patriots Day” experience for fifth grade students, Noah explained.

Terry Howell, also a teacher of the three essay winners, accompanied Anderson to the DAR luncheon on Wednesday where he was recognized for his first-place essay.
