What an exciting morning at McCormick’s Creek Elementary School! MCES 4th grader, Lucas Minor, was selected as the winner of the Association of Indiana Counties writing contest for this district.

Owen County Councilman Anton Neff was on hand to present Lucas with his $100.00 award and a special poster congratulating Lucas for his efforts. Josh and Jaime Minor, parents of Lucas, were able to surprise Lucas after his name was announced as the winner. This year’s topic was Historical Landmarks in Indiana.
