The 5th grade recently participated in the Exchange Club’s Crime Prevention Essay Contest, and three boys were selected as a finalist. Edward Smith, Rob McFadden, and Jack Billups proceeded to the next phase of the contest as the Law Enforcement Officials and the Exchange Club members interviewed them on Wednesday, March 6th. 

Edward Smith was selected as the winner among hundreds of participants from Memphis City, Shelby County and other private schools in the area and was given the title of Junior Assistant FBI Special Agent in Charge.  He was honored at a luncheon at Southwest Community College on March 14 where all of the ranking Law Enforcement leaders presented the students with badges and a cash prize. 

It is an honor to have Edward represent PDS as the winner of the Exchange Club's Crime Prevention Essay Contest.
