Josette was thrilled to do her Parras Legacy Project on Gene. The 8th graders were required to interview an elder and write a 300-word biographical essay that included dialogue, sensory
description and a personal connection to their subject. She was happy and excited to choose Gene and write about his colorful life. The essay
took almost two weeks of in-class and at-home time to complete. Josette worked very hard on her piece and did an excellent job delivering it to us and her classmates. Loved seeing the tears of joy in both her and Gene's eyes.

Mrs. Barker did a great job leading and guiding the students through the process.
