Liz, Class of 2015 at St. Paul’s School for Girls, was challenged by her English teacher, Michelle Stoll, to write a poem celebrating our beautiful Earth. Liz wrote a lovely poem, which was then submitted to the Department of Natural Resources poetry contest for the 2013-2014 year. She captured the prize last spring as the Department of Natural Resources poetry contest winner! We were able to superimpose her beautiful poem on one of her own photographs to create an inspiring piece that will soon hang proudly in our school hallways. Congratulations, Liz, and thank you for inspiring us to love and cherish our earth.
