Allen Park Awards EMWP "Business of the Year"

Bill Tucker, Director

The Eastern Michigan Writing Project has been named the “Business of the Year” in Allen Park for a business in the community that works closely with the Allen Park School District. EMWP will be honored at the annual "Founders' Day Banquet" held on February 12 at the Crystal Gardens Banquet Center, Southfield. Bill Tucker, Director, and Kim Pavlock, Co-director for Youth Programs, will attend to represent the Writing Project.

Judy Wycoff (TC '09), Amy West (TC'12), and APHS Principal Janet Wasko were among those supporting EMWP for this distinction. Judy and Amy have invited Sarah Lorenz, Co-director for Professional Development and Kim Pavlock to present workshops at the high school, as well as demonstrated their teaching of writing at the "Literacy Standards for Life" Saturday sessions. The 2012 Invitational Continuity Group is also meeting at Allen Park High School on February 9.

This a first for the chronically low-profile EMWP. We're very grateful for the recognition.
