The district is thrilled to announce that Bosti Elementary School fifth grade student Michael Ibraham was recently announced a finalist in the Major League Baseball’s “Breaking Barriers: In Sports, In Life” National Essay Contest. 

For his essay, Michael wrote about how he overcame his obstacle of inactivity, as he has since learned of the importance of daily exercise and remaining active. He has made it his goal to reach 10,000 steps on a daily basis in order to maintain optimal physical health. 

Although he wasn’t named a top 10 winner, Michael was selected as a finalist from among 8,000 submissions nationwide, a large accomplishment in itself. For his efforts, Michael was rewarded with a certificate of commendation, along with an official MLB bookmark and pin.
