Damascus Middle School Students Participate in Washington County Fair
Each year, students across Washington County look forward to the county fair as an opportunity to showcase their talents and skills in a variety of areas. 4-H Club members, with the support and encouragement of sponsor Mrs. Crystal Peek, work months in advance on various projects. DMS eighth-grader Jesse M. completed the ham project and was named Intermediate Division Champion and Overall Champion in the Country Ham Show. Eighth-grader Noah S.’s pullet project received Intermediate Division Champion and Overall Reserve Champion in the Pullet Show. Seventh-grader Dustin S.’s beautiful Indian corn won a blue ribbon, and seventh-grader Maggie M. won eight blue ribbons, six red ribbons and two white ribbons for her many wonderful entries in the Youth Home Economic & Farm Crop Show. In addition to these 4-H projects, two DMS students participated in the Talent Show at School Day at the Fair. Dustin S., accompanied by his mother on guitar, sang Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” and Claire H. played “The Titanic” on piano. Damascus Middle School’s eighth-grade art students, taught by Ms. Jennifer Smith, decorated a traffic cone in honor of this year’s fair theme, “All Roads Lead to the Washington County Fair” and received the Middle School Grand Champion title! Damascus Middle School was certainly well-represented at the 2017 Washington County Fair!
