I would like to congratulate all the Chester-East students
receiving awards 5-16-02. You are a very talented student body and
should be proud.
There were four students overlooked at the awards ceremony.
I’d like to extend a congratulations to Aaron Leesman Jr. for his
participation and accomplishments in the wrestling co-op at
Lincoln Junior High. Love you, Lil’ Aaron. We are proud of you.
A congratulations also to the three Chester-East Lincoln students
that participated in the Lincoln Junior High softball co-op.
I know only two of the girls’ names. If someone knows all three
names, please write in so they can receive their much-deserved but
A comment to Chester-East faculty and coaches. This was my first
awards night ceremony to attend. I was impressed that "everyone"
from the basketball team to the spelling bee winner was honored.
I thought not recognizing these co-op participants was a simple,
careless oversight on your part. I found out after the ceremony
that students participating in these co-ops are never recognized
by you. It is such a shame. These students may not bring home
banners to hang on the gym wall... BUT they DO participate as
representatives of the Chester-East’s talented student body. You
should treat them as such.
Please rethink this behavior in future years.
