Winning Grandparent + Winning Granddaughter = Winning Essay
Whitley East Elementary is very proud of fifth grade student Macy Paul. Macy poured her heart into an essay about her grandpa, Roger Woliver. She won the 2017 AARP Grandparent of the Year Essay Contest sponsored by the Whitley County Retired Teachers Association for our school. Her essay called “My Papaw Woliver,” went on to compete and win at the district level as well. Macy is scheduled to present her essay to the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association members in Corbin KY on March 16th. Joining her for this honor are her parents, Ricky and Becky Paul, grandparents Roger and Beverly Woliver, and her teacher Ms. Lauren Lawson.
