Scholarship Winners

One thing I love to read each year in Gilbert is the Gilbert and Frances Scholarship winners essays. The latest Gilbert had two essays, by Spencer Howe and Alex Ogrodnick.

Naturally, as a homeschooling mother, I enjoyed Spencer's article: "The Attack on Parents as Primary Educators."
If parents abdicate thier role as teachers of their children, then external influences will inculcate the young with popular and one-sided views on the most controversial and disputed dogmas, including political involvement, history, religion, and morality.
Not bad.

Alex's article, "Of Beaatitudes, Money, and Gratitude" was a Chestertonian view of possessions.

I enjoyed reading these young authors work, and wish them the best in their future endeavors.
