Trumbull County Bar Association Annual Law Day

Jeralynn Rudiak, fourth grade Hubbard Elementary student, was honored on Wednesday, May 1, by the Trumbull County Bar Association at their annual Law Day Luncheon for her drawing and writing in their contest "Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society." Jeralynn's parents, Joy and Mark Rudiak, and her teacher, Robyn Fette, were also invited to join her for the honor. Jeralynn's work placed first in Trumbull County for all fourth-grade submissions. In her submission, Jeralynn chose Helen Keller as an example of free speech. Jeralynn wrote, "Helen Keller was one and half years old when she lost her sight and hearing. She learned to speak and write and was known as an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She is remembered as an advocate for people with disabilities."
