Washington DC Tree-Lighter Essay Winner - Michael Mavris

We want to give a huge shout out to Michael Mavris, one of our fifth-grade students attending Mary Peacock, whose essay was selected from a nationwide competition, and as a result, Michael will be the tree-lighter for this year’s Capitol Christmas Tree in Washington D.C. As the youth tree lighter, Michael participated in the Harvest ceremony and will be traveling to Washington D.C. to participate in the lighting ceremony on the West Lawn of the U.S Capitol.

Great job Michael!
