Local students earn conference scholarships



Sawyer Lucas-Griffin, Sara McWhirter, and Seth Taylor have all been awarded scholarships to the 27th Jackson Hole Writers Conference. Sawyer, who will be a senior in the fall at JHHS, received the Catherine McKenzie Scholarship, and Sara McWhirter, a student at Journeys Schools, received a conference scholarship. The third scholarship goes to Seth Taylor, a graduating senior from C-V Schools, but a resident of Sheridan, Wyoming. In May Seth won the Word Duels, a joint “poetry slam” hosted by JHW, The Center and poet Matt Daly.

We are proud of these young writers and look forward to writing with them at the conference next week.
