Washington, CT - For the simple pleasure of writing and demonstrating a desire to create from the heart, Rachel J earned the special honor from After School Arts Program, ASAP. Annually Devereux Glenholme students, like Rachel, participate in the Laws of Life essay contest as part of their involvement in the school’s Community Service Program. Laws of Life encourages young writers to reflect upon important experiences and write about the values they believe will help them live successful and productive lives. Six Glenholme students earned the privilege of having their literary work submitted to ASAP in Washington, CT.

This year, Rachel’s poem entitled, “The Little Things in Life,” was selected from the thousands of submissions from students throughout Bridgewater, Roxbury, and Washington. Rachel is the first Glenholme student to be honored in the history of ASAP’s Fourth Annual Celebration of Young Writers and Benefit Auction.

The May 16th event was hosted by actor and comedian, Dennis Leary, and other guests of the literary and entertainment worlds read excerpts of the student works being honored. It was an excitement evening to remember as the celebrities boosted the enthusiasm of the audience and honored Rachel J and other local students for her effort.
