Every year, students in APU’s Freshman writing program submit essays and compete in three catagories: best personal essay, best argument, and best research paper. APU welcomed more than a thousand new students this year. Competition? Yea, more than a little.
I’m so proud that one of my students took first place in the personal essay catagory and second place in the researched argument category! Alyssa Hetschel was honored at the recent FWS Academic Conference.
Alyssa writes with a confident voice. She is gifted at recognizing the telling detail, and she knows how to edit distractions to make every word tell. That is what makes her a Great Writer.
