Andes student's poem is prize winner


Tyler Fairbairn, a freshman at Andes Central School, recently had a poem published in a hardbound anthology, A Celebration of Young Poets.
Entitled “Summer Fun,” Fairbairn’s piece was a winner in a summer 2007 contest sponsored by Creative Communication.
From the vantage point of an adolescent, Fairbairn’s selection encapsulates everything that is magical about summer. The young poet uses a rhythmic rhyming pattern in creating her piece. Fairbairn presented Andes Librarian Grace Bacon with a signed copy of the anthology. Andes student Matthew Armstrong also had a poem published in the book.
