HIES Students Pen Essays Honoring MLK

As part of MLK Day activities at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, students in Middle and Upper School were invited to participate in the “Living the Dream” essay contest based on this quote from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.” In 500 words, students wrote about what Dr. King’s dream means to them and how they are living the dream.

The top three students in each division were seventh-grader Caroline Edwards (winner), seventh-grader Eliza Ambler (2nd place) and Matt Luigs (3rd place) for Middle School and in Upper School, Rebekah Glover ’21 (winner) Tatiana Johnson ’22 (2nd place) and Zariah Thompson ’23 (3rd place). Thank you to all students who submitted essays.
