The writings of two JFS students scored additional awards at the district level of the Tri-Cities Woman’s Club Writing Contest.
Winning the short story competition was Isabelle Sorrells with her story “Revenge of Coriana the Blind,” a horror story set in a school that is allegedly haunted by the ghost of a student.
“I’ve had many great writers in English class, but Isabelle is the one I feel most confident in saying has the potential to grow up to be a great novelist,” said seventh-grade English teacher Bob Rarrick.
In the poetry competition, Luke Pylypciw took second place with his poem “Where History Was Made.” This poem details all the famous baseball players who have played in Yankee Stadium, using them as a metaphor for our society’s obsession with athletic success.
Congratulations to our Tiger writers!
