Dr. King Memorial Contest 2013

Dr. King Memorial Contest 2013

    The Governor’s Office of Minority Empowerment, in partnership with the Martin Luther King, Jr. State Commission, recently announced the winners of the 2013 Dr. King Memorial Contest. Three Blessed Sacrament students were named as state winners in the elementary school category: Katie Kruetzkamp, first place in visual arts; Andrew Reynolds, first place, essays; and Molly Kleier, third place, essays. These fifth grade students will be honored January 17 at the Kentucky Historical Society in Frankfort.

    The contest theme, “Moving Beyond the Dream to Brighten the Future”, motivated Kentucky students to envision themselves as productive citizens who impact change at both the community level and globally. The winners were selected on the basis of their reflection of Dr. King as an inspiring role model and the manner in which that inspiration shapes the students’ lives and communities. 

    During the past five years, Blessed Sacrament School has been represented by eight other students at the Kentucky Annual Dr. King Celebration. These state winners included: Patrick Ballow, 2008; Claire Morgan and Joseph Wuestefeld, 2010; Jack DeFraites, Meghan Greenwell, and Peter France, 2011; and Catherine Kremer and Grant Neltner, 2012.
