Layla Jean Mahan, a third grader from Garriga Elementary School in Port Isabel, was recently selected as the winner from her school for her entry in an art contest sponsored by SpaceX, the privately-owned rocket launching company that is building a facility on Boca Chica Beach in Brownsville.
The contest was open to students from every campus in Point Isabel ISD, and Layla was the youngest winner from the district.
