Last year’s third graders each received a baby cabbage plant from Bonnie Plants, with a goal to grow it over the summer and compete for $1000 scholarship prize.

Rocco Mattinson not only did this, but also won “Best in State”!  His cabbage weighed in at 13 lbs!!   

Rocco told his class today he wants to be a police officer when he grown up. This $1000 and a summer of hard work, is definitely a step in the right direction!  Way to 'Reach for Your Potential' by pushing yourself to do amazing things!
