A fourth grader from Jeff Davis Elementary School in Biloxi is not only the winner of a state-wide contest but he also placed fourth in the entire nation.
Fourth grader Alec Bray is the winner of the writing portion of a national contest where elementary students learn all about the economy’s stock market. The entire elementary school gathered in the Jeff Davis gym to surprise Bray with the honor. Fourth and fifth graders used Google Finance to invest in stocks with play money. Bray’s winning essay was on electronic company Apple.
Bray tells News 25 he would like to thank his teacher and parents for their support with his essay.
