ENGL 1000 student wins second place in WMU Essay Contest
One of our English 1000 students, Petter Kerizareth, was a finalist in the university-wide "Grab the Reins" essay contest held last month. Petter is a student in Joe Law's ENGL 1000 class and his essay, "Who helped Me Grab The Reins", won second prize. Though this year's "Grab the Reins" contest is finished, other students in Joe's class are interested in writing essays about who has inspired them to attend Western. So, Joe is organizing his own essay contest for these students during the month of November, and Erinn J. Bentley, Director of Developmental Writing, will be serving as the contest's judge.
