“Garfield M. Langhorn’s heroism inspired me to put people before myself. For example, my friend and I were getting bullied and I said, ‘Don’t bully my friend, bully me instead!’ That ended the harassment for my friend.”
So said Pulaski Street Elementary School sixth grader Christopher Donnelly Friday morning, reading from his winning essay chosen during the 10th annual Garfield M. Langhorn Essay Contest.
Christopher was one of three winners chosen from 272 entries this year. The two other winners were Alisha Griffin and Reilly Hubbard.
