Katie is now a published author! Katie was required to read the book "I'm Down" by Mishna Wolff for her First Year Experience Class. She was given the opportunity to submit her essay to the Common Reading Essay Contest. Katie won FIRST PLACE! out of all of the submitted essays. Her work was evaluated by 24 judges, and her award was presented to her today by the Dean of Undergraduate Education. The author of the book, Mishna Kelly read the essays as well and sent a congratulatory note. There was a great ceremony, a lot of professors, the judges and photographers there and they were all VERY complimentary to Katie about her essay. To make it even nicer, she won $200 which will go to her study abroad fund. We are very proud of her, just like we are every day!
