Six Trinity students, Brittany Nowell, Micah Weissinger, Michaela Meyers, Jackson Gunter, Catherine Patton, and Cassidy Nall, were published in the Fall 2011 edition of the Creative Communications poetry anthology. The 10th and 11th grade students submitted poems they had written for Miss Ballard’s British or American literature classes to the Creative Communications poetry contest. Their efforts were rewarded when the poems were accepted and published in the anthology. Miss Ballard received a copy of the book for free since more than five of her students were accepted. Trinity has had continual success with this program throughout the years, and she hopes that her students will enter the Spring competition as well.
