PAYTON DRAKE HONORED BY MIZZOUâ€™S CAMPUS WRITING PROJECT
As a part of Dr. D.â€™s senior level, dual credit course, Composition II, Payton Drake developed an essay for a contest sponsored by the University of Missouri at Columbia. The contest is co-sponsored by the School of Law and the Campus Writing Project. The subject is campus speech, protest, and conflict resolution. The winner of this essay contest earns a $2,000 scholarship to Mizzou and a $500 prize.
As a result of her submission, Payton was invited to participate in the campus-wide â€œChampions Workshopâ€ on Friday, March 2, 2018, which includes a roundtable discussion with professors on related topics and a screening of a documentary film called â€œWonâ€™t You Be My Neighborâ€ at the True/False Festival. There is time with expert guidance to prepare her essay for potential publication in the School of Lawâ€™s Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution.
We are proud of Paytonâ€™s effort and the fact that her writing was honored at the University-level. Payton is a go-getter and embodies the Bulldog spirit!
