Several Gum Springs Elementary School students recently wrote opinion pieces about community restaurants.

Writers in Becky Hawk’s class presented and read their opinion writing pieces to community restaurants, detailing why that particular restaurant is their favorite.

Many of them were featured on the company's social media, posted on their restaurant boards, received free meals and earned coupons to come back for a special dessert.

"We could not be more proud of how brave they were and how much courage it took to put their writings out there," school leaders state.
