The SCI congratulates Danielle Gangloff, Megan Henderson, and Eddie Ridout on their achievements in the Yes! National Student Writing Competition. Eddie was “was a Top Three Finalist in the university category” and Danielle’s essay will be quoted in the “Literary Gems section” which “highlights writing that catches” the eyes of the judges. Megan’s work was also applauded by the judges for her “honesty and courage.” All three students are enrolled in Dr. Michele Ren’s SCI designated Core 102 course.  

Dr. Ren, an alum of Radford University’s MA program in English, is a faculty member in the RU departments of English and Women’s Studies.  She served on the Faculty Development Subcommittee of the Scholar-Citizen Launch Initiative and has been a consistent champion for learning experiences that extend beyond a classroom's four walls.  

Kudos to Dr. Ren and to her students for their commitment to teaching and learning with courage!
