First place in patriotism; boy wins state essay contest

Central Catholic’s Taylor Blanchard recently was named the winner of a statewide Knights of Columbus essay contest for seventh- and eighth-grade students. Blanchard’s essay was selected from among 863 entries. From left are Holy Cross Knights of Columbus Grand Knight Keith Thibodeaux, Blanchard, and Kenny Duval, Knights of Columbus patriotic chairman for the Monsignor Jules S. Toups Assembly and past grand knight of the Holy Cross Knights of Columbus.

Central Catholic seventh-grader Taylor Blanchard knows what it means to be patriotic, and he’s not the only one who thinks so.
