Myers scribes prevail in city essay contest

ALBANY, N.Y. (Nov. 18, 2016) -- Being good writers recently paid off for four Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School seventh-graders.

 

Boubacar Barrie, Nyheem Johnson, Sean Mitchell and Liv Nevo were among five winners whose essays were chosen from among 147 submitted in a recent Albany Police Department essay contest.

 

Each of the winners received a fat-tire bicycle. (Mitchell is pictured at right with his new bike and Police Chief Brendan Cox.)

 

The contest was open to all students who live or attend school in Albany.  Each was asked to write about one of the following topics: how do you plan to be successful in school this year? What is a positive interaction you had with a police officer? How can you make a positive impact in your community?

 

The winners were recognized in a special ceremony on Nov. 15. All four Myers winners are students of teacher Briana DelBene. Great work by all!

  

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves about 9,500 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
