From Kathy Smartt, SHS Principal -

Angelo State University recently held its 22nd Writers Conference and Sweetwater’s Trenton Hicks was honored as a Young Writers Contest winner.

Hicks submitted a work through his SHS / ASU dual credit British Literature class taught by Amanda Hall. “Where Home Is," a humorous poem that celebrates West Texas, won 1st place in the poetry competition.

Hicks was awarded a certificate and a book by Brian Turner, the conference’s featured writer. SHS is proud of Trenton Hicks and hopes that more dual credit students will participate in this contest in the future.
