Congratulations to Michelle Mulé '20 who was awarded three silver keys, for two poems and one short story, and six honorable mentions, for five poems and one short story, in this year's Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Michelle also received a Gold Key and an honorable mention for two additional photographs she submitted, including "Cloudy Coast" pictured above.
Michelle's poem "The Waffle House in East Atlanta" was also recently selected for publication in the Connecticut Student Writers Magazine, a statewide magazine published by the Connecticut Student Writing Project at Storrs, CT. Michelle has been asked to read this poem at the student recognition night, in May, as the representative for Grade 11 across the state.
"I continue to enjoy writing as a means of expressing thoughts and reflections on places that I have visited and experiences that I have had. I often write about the natural beauty around me and the beauty of foreign landscapes and people that I have encountered while traveling. I also tend to write about my years living in the American South, and my family's origins there. I was happy to receive recognition for my work, as I am very passionate about writing and spend much of my free time doing it," adds Michelle.
