Turning Point Academy student becomes a published poet

Donna Woods, a senior at Turning Point Academy, recently became one of the first TPA students to have her writing published. Woods participated in a poetry writing contest offered through the Michigan Reading Association. 

Her poem, Terrible World, Terrible People, won a published spot on page 81 in the 2014 edition of the Kaleidoscope Book, a Michigan Reading Association publication. Woods and her family were also invited to the Young Authors’ Luncheon at the 2014 Annual Conference, Plug In to Reading Writing, and Thinking, on March 16 in Grand Rapids.

TPA administrators are very proud of Woods and have declared May 7, 2014 “Donna Woods Day.” On this day the school will have an official book signing and activities in honor of Ms. Woods’ accomplishment.
