OHS Sophomores Recognized by Cleveland Clinic Literary Expressions
January 28, 2016
Orange High School sophomores Kaitlyn Margolis and Isabella Schauer (pictured here with Gifted Teacher Kathy Frazier) will each be recognized for outstanding work by the Cleveland Clinic Literary Expressions Program at a formal reception on January 28, 2016.
More than 1600 pieces were submitted in the annual contest in which students created a literary response related to medical research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic over the summer. Margolis received a Blue Ribbon and $100 for her poem entitled "I am ready." The poem took on a different meaning when read from the top to the bottom versus from the bottom to the top. Schauer received a Red Ribbon and $75 for her literary work entitled "The Evolution of Breast Reconstruction" in which each line began with the consecutive letters from the title.
Teachers Kathy Frazier, Jessalyn Boeke and Vikas Turakhia challenged their students to create unique literary entries including short stories, plays, poetry and more as part of a five-week, collaborative effort in the 10th grade Honors English classes. The award-winning pieces will be displayed at the Global Center for Health Innovation in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
