First names missing, kids listed in the wrong grade…..hm , Report Reply 1 reply · active 305 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down CueballSumnernewscow 94p · 305 weeks ago You’re being a jerk. The program had Brunboeber listed as a middle schooler when he was in elementary school. The first names weren’t listed because I already listed the name in the story above. How about telling me what I did wrong and I’d gladly correct it. Report Reply +6 Vote up Vote down Auntina · 305 weeks ago 2nd place Shelby Brunhoeber. Awesome! Caldwell is proud of you 🙂 Good luck, Jael Catlett. Bring it home. You can do it!
