She also recognized the seven principals whose students submitted entries in the contest, including, beginning second from left, Candace Lett of Bowers Elementary, Nadine Jackson of Midway Middle, Lance Duff of Roane County High, Jeff Woods of Oliver Springs High, Alan Reed of Rockwood High and Scott Mason of Midway High.

The anthology can be purchased for a $10 donation at all Roane County public libraries, Kingston Community Center, Oran’s Flower Shop, Rosemary’s Florist, Rocky Top General Store and Tennessee’s Finest Awards & Plaques. All proceeds benefit the fall 2011 writing awards and Roane State scholarship program.
