Marshall Students Recognized for their Law of Life

Two Beaumont ISD students are finalists for the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Southeast Texas Program Laws of Life.  Olivia Barrett and Trace Fuselier, both of Marshall Middle School, will be honored at an awards banquet April 20, 2017 at the MCM Elegante Hotel.

“Over 4,000 SETX students and 22 schools participated in Laws of Life this year,” said BBB Education Foundation Coordinator Michelle Brewer. “We are so proud of these outstanding young people, their teachers and their campuses for embracing BBB’s Laws of Life.”

Students were chosen after submitting personal narrative essays naming and expounding on their own personal ‘law of life’. Patience, courage, bravery and humility are some of the topics essayists chose.

According to BBB, Laws of Life was launched as a means of promoting character development for Southeast Texas middle school and junior high students. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for young people to reflect on and write about the guiding principles in which they should strive to live. Respect, bravery, forgiveness, fairness and love are some of the topics students write about in their essays. Laws of Life is open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students in Southeast Texas.
