*Hawkins Honored for Healthy Body/Healthy Mind Challenge*
The Sumner County Health Committee recently held its Community Health Leadership Awards. Mr. Cotter was chosen as the Educator Winner.

HMS was also recognized for the Healthy Body-Healthy Mind Challenge we have held during April. Mr. Cotter is pictured below receiving an award for our success.

Allison Henry - Greatness Exemplified!
Sixth grade student Allison Henry recently placed 4th in District 12-S of the Lion's Club annual essay contest. This year's contest prompt was, "How Drugs Affect Teenagers Lives". After submitting her essay to the local Hendersonville chapter of the Lion's Club in November, it was advanced to the district level. District 12-S is comprised of 17 counties and is the largest district in Tennessee!
In stiff competition with surrounding students, Allison's essay was awarded 4th place for the district. She found out her place at a dinner hosted by the Lion's Club on Feb 15th. For her 4th place finish she was awarded $150. In addition, she will be recognized by the Hendersonville Lion's Club chapter at a dinner on Feb 25 and awarded another $100 by that Club.
Everyone at HMS wishes to congratulate Allison and thank her for representing our school and it's mission to show "Greatness Everyday"!
