JAMESTOWN —Four students from Greeneview Middle School competed in the Regional Power of the Pen Tournament held March 4 at Wittenberg University.
Seventh grader Frankie Howard was 11th overall and qualified for The College of Wooster’s State Tournament in May.
In all there were 33 schools and seven counties represented. Other Greeneview participants were eighth grader Elizabeth Reichley, and seventh graders Astryd Swanson, and Laura Robin.
Coaches and judges from Greeneview Middle School were Amy Engle (Spanish teacher) and Carolyn Jones (eighth grade English teacher).
“I’ve been coaching and judging Power of the Pen for 13 years, and the powerful writing that I have the privilege to read year after year is remarkable,” Jones said. “These writers have potential to make writing part of their future, and Power of the Pen makes them realize that potential.”
