Congratulations to the 2016 I Love the Press winner, Linda Petersen.
Linda was randomly selected from our list of annual voluntary subscribers and received a $200 cash prize.
“I was just sitting down to read the Brentwood Press when the call came in,” said Petersen. “At first, I thought it wasn’t real, but when I realized I had actually won, I knew just what I wanted to do with the money.”
Instead of accepting the prize money for herself, Linda told The Press’ social media manager, Michele Chatburn, that she was going to donate it to the music department at Edna Hill Middle School, where her granddaughter, Ivy Myers, plays the flute.
“The music department is hoping to raise extra funds for special field trips this year,” said Peterson. “I am happy to help them get closer to making that a reality.”
