Bryant was subject of award-winning essay

A Robert B. Turner Elementary School student was selected county winner in the “2013-2014 Grandparent of the Year” essay contest sponsored by AARP Kentucky and the Kentucky Retired Teachers’ Association.

Emily Franck, a fifth-grader in Gina Morgan’s class, was chosen as the winner based on her essay honoring her grandfather - Bill Bryant. The essay competition is a unique way to recognize the significant contributions that older Kentuckians make toward shaping the lives and values of youth across the Commonwealth.

Franck and her family were guests at the Anderson County Retired Teachers’ spring meeting, where Emily received a framed certificate from AARP and a monetary award from the local retired teachers’ association.

The AARP “Grandparent of the Year” essay contest is organized by local retired teacher associations, who help secure local school participation, promote the activity and serve as local contest judges.
