Guidry earns state Young Authors honor
First-grader Robert Guidry of Julia B. Maitland Elementary School took third place in state in the Louisiana Reading Association’s Young Authors Contest. The association awarded him a medal and a copy of the Les Jeunes Ecrivains, a journal containing all of the state winning entries. With Guidry are Maitland first-grade teacher Monica Governale, left, and M C Bank representative Emily Berry. M C. Bank donated trophies to winners and Target donated certificates and gift bags. Teachers were recognized and given a gift certificate donated by the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Morgan City.
