Miss Tennessee Grace Burgess visited Southside School during Read Week to talk to students about her journey to the crown and read them a story. Burgess talked about perseverance or, as she called it, “GRIT.” G stands for “Give it your all.” R is for “Reach High.” I stands for “Ignore the negatives,” and T is for “Try and try again.” With her humor, inspirational message and beautiful voice, she held the attention of her audience and easily won the students’ hearts.
