Congratulations to the DHS Media Center!
The GCPS Foundation awarded the media center a $5000 grant submitted as  The Writing Process: Out of the Mouth of an Author.
The money will be used to bring at least one young adult author to Duluth HS to discuss with students his/her writing process. Since writing is an LSPI goal for Duluth, a published author can enlighten students about the process in an effort to help them improve their own style.
