Kerrie Gillespie wins TDS Essay Contest

TDS Telecom announced that BICS senior Kerrie Gillespie won its annual Essay Contest, receiving a $200 scholarship.

She's now in the running for the next round of awards, $10,000 in scholarship money at the national level. If she wins that, her sponsoring teacher will also receive $500 in educational materials. Needless to say, she’s receiving plenty of encouragement and advice.

Kerrie was praised for her excellent submission, which demonstrated a high degree of writing talent–only fitting for the daughter of the Island's former (and still undefeated in open competition) poet laureate.
