Under the direction of Coach Brent Futrell, Florence Middle School 7th grade students participated in the Fleet Reserve Association Patriotic Essay contest this past November. Middle and high school students from San Antonio, Comfort and Waco, along with many other districts, entered in this contest as well. There were over 600 essays that were submitted and FMS had the top three winners! This has never happened in the 14+ years the Fleet Reserve Association has been providing this award.  Placing first and winning $100 was Emmitt Hubbard, second and winning $75 was Reina Hamman and winning third place and $50 was Corbin Lewis. 

We commend and congratulate Coach Futrell and these outstanding students!
