    Let’s not forget Johnson Williams Middle School contributers as well. Ten middle school students went to the fair and Emma Robinson was a Gold Medal Winner in Environmental Science.

    • Thanks for the additional information about our Middle School participants. CDN

      • Cindy Hayes says:

        Now I also hear that there were some silver and bronze medal winners for middle school as well. Perhaps someone who knows the details can post them as well.

        • Michelle Graham says:

          Alec Graham, 6th grader at JWMS, won the bronze in Engineering. Thanks for asking. I would think Mr.Borger at the middle school would have information on the rest of the winners.

            JWMS eighth-grader Max Cardillo won Gold in Behavioral Science, and Matt Dietz won Silver in the same category.
