Young R T S poets earn high level recognition

Thanks to some leg work by teacher Karl O'Leary, a group of 7th and 8th grade poets from Susquehanna Valley's Richard T. Stank Middle School will, for eternity, have their names linked to one of the greatest poets the world has ever known. Mr. O'Leary compiled poetry created by our students into an anthology, which he submitted for consideration in the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association's 31st Annual Poetry Contest for students in grades 3 through 12, which attracted 2,700 entries. The Richard T. Stank students' poetry collection Dreams Devoured, was entered in Category 1: Class Anthology, Grades 7 and 8, and was named Grand Champion in that category. An awards ceremony is planned for June 4 at Walt Whitman's Birthplace, Huntington Station, NY.
