A Dean Rusk Middle School seventh grader and a Creekland Middle School eighth grader are the winners of Cherokee County School District’s annual middle school writing contest.

Layne M. Davidson of Dean Rusk Middle School won the seventh-grade division for her children’s book, “Flowers from London,” and Chloe Feibus of Creekland Middle School won the eighth-grade division for her story “The Mend” in the 2021 writing contest organized by the district’s Office of Curriculum and Instruction. Their winning stories are published on the CCSD website at www.cherokeek12.net/News/writing21.

The entries were written by students as part of the seventh-grade children’s book and eighth-grade sci-fi/dystopian Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) units taught in all middle school English language arts classes. Layne’s seventh-grade advanced English literature and composition teacher was Tiffany Robbins; Chloe’s eighth-grade advanced English literature and composition teacher was Teleah McTeer.
