Greenfield Jr. High Student Honored

Aiden Bowles, an eighth grader at Greenfield Jr. High, was honored on April 25, 2019, at the Writers Hall of Fame Student Awards Banquet for his award-winning poem, “The Pigs.” After Aiden’s limerick placed first in the 7-8 division of the Language Arts Department (LAD) contest, it was then chosen as the “best of the best” in strict formula poetry from six combined categories in grades 7 and 8.

The Writers Hall of Fame organization of Springfield supports the voices of young people in grades 5-12 by celebrating their accomplishments from the LAD Fair. At the banquet Aiden was recognized and received a certificate of accomplishment while David Harrison, award-winning author and sought-after keynote speaker, read Aiden’s poem aloud. As with any good limerick, Aiden’s words filled the room with laughter.

Attending the banquet with Aiden were his aunt, Sarah Moller; his language arts teacher, Renee Burton, who submitted his poem; and his history teacher, Brad Burton.
