Every year the VFW's across the country have a Voice of Democracy writing contest that also brings a scholarship. This year The Plains VFW Post 7174 is honoring Grace Pratt (senior at AHS) and Lauren Chase (sophomore at AHS) of Athens City School District. Grace finished 1st out of this post and 6th in the state. Lauren finished 2nd out of this post. Way to go ladies, we couldn't be more proud!
