Students Win Holocaust Writing Contest

An email I just received  from Mrs. Bluma Zuckerbrot-Finkelstein, Director of Planning, Community Relations, Israel & International Affairs at the Memphis Jewish Federation informed me that our high school students have once again ran away with their annual community-wide Holocaust Writing contest.  In the essay category CYHSB and GMSG students took two of the top three spots and in the poetry category, our kids had a clean sweep.  Congratulations to the winning students and to their English teachers, Mrs. Talya Tsuna, Mrs. Ashley Brown and Mrs. Abby Johnson.  Keep up the great work!

Here is a list of the winners:


First Place:                 Zahava Gersten (GMSG)
Second Place:            Autumn Childers (St. Cecilia’s Academy)
Third Place:               Dylan Cooper (CYHSB) and Leah Fleischhacker (GMSG)


First Place:                 Emma Peiser (GMSG)
Second Place:            Hannah Morris (GMSG)
Third Place:               Sarah Broniscer  (GMSG)
