Elrod Vo was recognized for winning the distinction of being an Achieve3000 WorldWide winner in Mrs. Amy Bennett's eighth grade reading class. He won the most points by completing reading texts and tasks and receiving points for passing scores. Two years ago, Elrod won the most points nationwide when he was a sixth grader in Mrs. Bennett's class. This year, Elrod entered the new school year determined to advance from being the nationwide to the worldwide level winner. Remarkably, Elrod accomplished his goal before the end of the first semester. Walton Middle School is very proud of Elrod's accomplishments. Submitted by Kristen Rhodes/Laura Smith.
