On Friday, 4 OPJH students were honored for their winning entries in the Historical Society of Orange Park's Veterans Day Essay Contest. All four received certificates and applause and one, the first place winner, Keren Metelus, read her essay on "Why Veterans Deserve Our Support, Respect and Understanding" to the two hundred or so gathered at the town's ceremony. Keren received a check for $75, a plaque and certificate from the historical society and a stuffed bulldog given by a Marine as a token of appreciation. The bulldog is a spokes-symbol for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign which Mr. Baker will bring to OPJ this week.
