Skyview Junior High School seventh-grader Shannon Hong is also a state winner in the 2014 Washington State PTA Men’s Essay Contest.

Hong won the sixth through eighth division for her essay “Mr. Redford,” which praised her social studies teacher Jordan Redford for his purposeful teaching and how he truly cares about his students.

Hong joins Inglemoor High School student Ashley Jensen who was the winner in the ninth division of the contest.

Inglemoor High School student Ashley Jensen has been named the state winner for the Washington State PTA Men’s Essay Contest in the ninth through 12th division. Jensen, a sophomore, wrote an essay recounting memories on how her grandfather served, and continues to serve, as an influential male figure in her life. This past weekend, she had the opportunity to read her essay to nearly 1,000 people at the WA State PTA convention. Both essays are featured on Washington State PTA website.
