April is turning out to be a wonderful month! My Tar Heels won the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship and North Carolina's Poet Laureate has signed on to be a judge for our summer reading POETRY CONTEST!!!
"Do what?!!!!" you say!
Yes, Kathryn Stripling Byer, a resident of Cullowhee (think Western Carolina!) and our state's Poet Laureate, has agreed to judge summer reading participants' poetic entries. She'll be joined by Taylorsville Times editor, Micah Henry; Sugar Loaf Elementary teacher, Liz Cronan; East Middle School teacher, Julie Eudy; and Alexander Central High's Elizabeth Duncan.
We will collect poetry submitted by summer readers from rising 1st grade to 2009 high school graduates. When I get myself together, I'll give more details! That might take a while - Ar! Ar!
Hope everyone's Easter was beautiful!
