Jenifer stu­dent to rep­re­sent Charles County at Mary­land Day Cel­e­bra­tion

Maryland Independent - - Community -

Ami­nah Wright, a fourth grader at Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer Ele­men­tar y School, likes to write and en­joys learn­ing about his­tory. She es­pe­cially en­joys learn­ing about Mary­land and the his­tor y of Charles County. Wright re­cently put her thoughts in writ­ing and was se­lected for her es­say as Charles County’s stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the His­toric St. Mar y’s City Mar yland Day Cel­e­bra­tion.

As part of the cel­e­bra­tion, stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tives from each Mary­land county, as well as Bal­ti­more City, will par­tic­i­pate in the flag cer­e­mony on March 25 and carry a flag to rep­re­sent Charles County.

Sev­eral Charles County Pub­lic Schools (CCPS) stu­dents en­tered the con­test. Wright’s es­say, ti­tled “Why I’m Proud to Live in Charles County,” was cho­sen as the win­ning en­try by CCPS staff. In her es­say, Wrights de­tails the his­tor y of Mar yland, Charles County and the sur­round­ing ge­og­ra­phy. Wright said she is proud to rep­re­sent her home­town and en­joys ben­e­fits of liv­ing near the ocean.

“I am proud to live in Charles County be­cause of the great lo­ca­tion of Mary­land by the sea, and the great sea life here. My per­sonal fa­vorites are cala­mari and crab. Grow­ing sea life brings more jobs for peo­ple, food and clothes on their backs,” Wright said.

In her es­say, Wright also talks about the school sys­tem and how she thinks her school is great. “Our teach­ers are nice and make it ver y easy to un­der­stand what they are teach­ing us,” she said. The cer­e­mony, which will high­light Mary­land’s 383rd an­niver­sary, starts at 10 a.m. at the His­toric St. Mary’s City Vis­i­tor Cen­ter.
