The Franklin/Gulf Retired Educators’ Association, an affiliate of the Florida Retired Educators’ Association, is happy to announce the winner of the 2014 essay contest.



Each year, fifth-grade students are invited to participate by writing an essay about their relationship with a grandparent or grandparent figure.



Our winner this year is Allie Godwin, a student in Ms. Cindy Phillips’ class at Port St. Joe Elementary School, for her essay, entitled “A Happy Memory.”



In her essay Godwin relates experiences with her Gan-Gan. Godwin was awarded a $25 cash prize and her essay will be forwarded to the next level for judging and possibly compete at state level.
