CLOVER — The Greater Clover Chamber of Commerce has named five school-level winners and one district-level winner in its annual Christmas parade poster contest for elementary school students.
The Clover school district winner is Katelyn Norris, a fourth-grader at Kinard Elementary School. Parade chairwoman Pam Mills and Jackie Robinson, director of the chamber, presented the award during a Kinard leadership assembly on Nov. 25.
Winners at all the other Clover schools are fifth-graders. The winners at each elementary school are:
• Bethany Elementary, Lilian Susens.
• Bethel Elementary, Catherine Justice.
• Crowders Creek Elementary, Kate Grohregin.
• Griggs Road Elementary, Jackie McClure.
• Larne Elementary, Ashley Burris.
The theme for this year’s parade, which was sponsored by the chamber, was “Have a Merry Local Christmas,” a nod to its effort to encourage families to buy local, shop local, eat local and invest local.
Each elementary school student winner receives a framed print award and a Walmart gift card. This year a district winner was selected and named the parade’s first junior grand marshal.
