In case you missed it, one of our own was featured in the newspaper on Sunday. Allyssia Gomez, a 5th grader at Maple Grove Elementary, won a contest to have her t-shirt design used for the annual Walk for Warmth fundraiser.
Participants in this year’s annual Walk for Warmth will be able to sport a great-looking new Tshirt, thanks to Maple Grove Elementary student Allyssia Gomez.
Gomez, 11, had the winning T-shirt design for the annual fundraiser. Gomez was one of many students from four elementary schools around the county who chose to participate in the contest, and the Walk for Warmth organizers at the Human Development Commission (HDC) said they had a very hard time choosing just one winner.
Walk for Warmth coordinator Deborah Marquardt was on hand Friday morning to present Gomez with the first Tshirt featuring her design, along with school principal Paul Dombrowski and proud parents Emiliano and Amelia Gomez of Lapeer Township.
Great job Allyssia!
