C.W. Davis Middle School Principal Eddie Millwood said recently that sixth-grader Natalie Carmical has been named a winner in a national essay contest sponsored by the World War II Museum in New Orleans, La.
Carmical’s entry, “The Dangers of Being Indifferent,” is based on a quote from Elie Wiesel, a World War II holocaust survivor who earned a Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 for his lifelong campaigns for human rights and against genocide and violence.
Natalie’s social studies teacher, Ryan Hartrick, received the news March 3 from Collin Makamson, student programs coordinator for the National World War Ii Museum.
Hartrick said the essay was part of a class assignment he made in December.
