Abbigail Marshall, 3rd grader at Greensboro Elementary, has been selected as third place winner at the elementary school level in the 2022 Governor’s Healthcare Heroes Poster Competition.
Governor Larry Hogan welcomed winners and their families to the State House in Annapolis for a special event, and was joined by First Lady Hogan, Dr. Chan, and Maryland State Superintendent of Schools Mohammed Choudhury. Abbigail and the other winners were each presented with an official governor’s citation, and the winning posters are now on display at the University of Maryland Medical Center’s Weinberg Atrium in Baltimore City.
The competition, launched during last month’s Healthcare Heroes Appreciation Week and organized in partnership with the Maryland State Department of Education, encouraged Maryland students to submit poster designs that depicted the theme ‘Celebrating Maryland’s Healthcare Heroes.’ A total of 131 schools from 18 school districts participated in the competition. Nine winners were selected by First Lady Yumi Hogan and Dr. Jinlene Chan, the Deputy Secretary for Public Health Services at the Maryland Department of Health. Three entries were chosen from each of the following categories: elementary school, middle school, and high school.
Abbigail was also recognized at the Caroline County Board of Education meeting in May and presented with a certificate. In addition to her family, Abbigail was joined by Art teacher Melissa Lewis, Principal Dawn Swann, and Supervisor of Instruction Renee Hesson.
