March 6, 2014
FORT JACKSON, S.C. (March 6, 2014) -- Ten C.C. Pinckney Elementary School students received a surprise visit from the Pinckney Reading Prize Patrol Feb. 27.
The patrol, which includes faculty members, visited the students' homes and awarded them with books, balloons and a photo with the prize patrol. The students are selected randomly from entry ballots. Once the ballots have been chosen, they are handed over to Military Police to review addresses and design what is called, "the winning route." Winners are not notified in advance in order to maintain the surprise.
The winning students are Nathaniel Gray, Kadence Johnston, Joshua Doward, Holly Lynch, Brandon Briggs, Zyiah Romero, Chad Miles, Celya Holmes, Leandra Romero and Alexis Timm.
