From the San Marcos school district

A local service club recognized a group of San Marcos CISD students who have distinguished themselves in writing and oratory despite having speech, hearing or language disorders.

For 10 years, the San Marcos chapter of SERTOMA, whose name is a mash-up of their mission of “Service To Mankind”, has sponsored a local essay competition. Winners from each campus are recognized at a luncheon where they are presented a certificate and $25-50 honorarium.

The 2008 campus winners are:

  • Justin Martinez and Connor Graves of Crockett Elementary School,
  • Angel Patlan of Travis Elementary School,
  • Tiffany Solis and Amanda Lieber of Goodnight Junior High School, and
  • Amber Allen and Leslie Blagg of San Marcos High School.

Connor Graves was selected as the District Elementary winner, and Amanda Lieber earned District Secondary winner status.
