Power of the Pen team reigns superior

On May 24, five Chagrin Falls Middle School state-qualifiers for Power of the Pen traveled to the College of Wooster to write against hundreds of other qualifiers. The Chagrin Falls’ writers each wrote three rounds of writing and were scored against a state writing rubric. The five writers included eighth-graders Olivia Wirble, Kate Stephenson, Christina Bencin and Marie Kanzinger and seventh-grader Sophia Clark. Marie won first place in the state with “superior” ratings for all of her scores, and Sophia was in the top 25 writers for the entire state.

“We here in Chagrin should be so proud of these student writers,” said Advisor Larry Richmond.
