Cypress, TX News – Four Students Named “Do The Right Thing” School Finalists

Cypress, TX News (April 3, 2014) – Four Cy-Fair ISD students have been selected as school finalists for the Houston/Harris County Do the Write Thing challenge, and will be recognized at a reception on June 1 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Reliant Arena.

More than 13,000 students from 119 Houston-area schools submitted essays in the contest, which allows students to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives. Through classroom discussions and writing—including essays, poetry, songs or narratives – students communicate methods to reduce student violence while committing to help solve the problem.

Campbell Middle School seventh-grade students Kieara Davis, left, and Francisco Villareal were two of CFISD’s four Do the Write Thing school finalists.

Of the 13,000-plus entrants, approximately 240 students were chosen as school finalists—out of whom two will be chosen as state finalists and two will be chosen as national finalists.

The following Cy-Fair ISD students were named Do the Write Thing school finalists, and will be published in the Do the Write Thing Book of Student Writings:

  • Koustubh Nyshadham, eighth grade, Arnold Middle School
  • Johana Garcia, eighth grade, Arnold Middle School
  • Francisco Villareal, seventh grade, Campbell Middle School
  • Kieara Davis, seventh grade, Campbell Middle School
