St. Charles College Student Takes Top Writing Prize and Becomes a Published Author

May 27, 2013 - Emily McCarthy has worked tirelessly to take the top prize in The Learning Partnership’s Turning Points Essay Contest this year. 
 
Each year, the essay contest forces students to explore their character development through the use of literacy. 
 
McCarthy’s personal essay of 500-700 words reflects on how individuals deal with conflict in their lives and how that changes them to become different people.
 
She shared the story of her cousin who died in 2009 and how she went through a dark stage in her life.  To overcome the darkness, she turned to her family and found a better relationship with God.
 
This is a first-time win for Emily and for her school, St. Charles College.
 
Ms. Lindsay Morris, her English teacher from first semester says “Emily deserves this honour.  As a class, we did a lot of legwork to make the students really think about who they are inside.  Emily did many drafts, and worked so hard to take each revision of her work seriously.  I would give her tips and the next day she would come back with an entire re-write.”
 
Emily will receive a cheque and a plaque for all her hard work.  She will also have her work formally published.
