How WWC alumnus Roger Hutchison responded to Newtown

As the community of Newtown struggled to make sense of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, the nation responded with prayer, philanthropy and politics. One man responded with paint.

Roger Hutchison, a youth minister and lay leader with Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Columbia, S.C., was invited to the small Connecticut town to aid in the emotional and spiritual recovery of those affected by the tragedy. Hutchison, who graduated from Warren Wilson College in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree in humanities, gladly accepted.

Catherine Reid

Reid awarded NEA Fellowship

Catherine Reid, chair of Warren Wilson College’s undergraduate creative writing program, has been selected by the National Endowment for the Arts to receive a Creative Writing Fellowship in Prose (fiction or creative nonfiction). The $25,000 non-matching grant is one of only 38 fellowships awarded nationwide. They enable published writers to set aside time for writing, research, travel and general career advancement.

Reid was awarded the fellowship based on a manuscript reviewed through an anonymous process in which the only review criteria are artistic excellence and artistic merit. Her essay, which first appeared in the Georgia Review, interweaves themes about bird hibernation with the influences of her grandmother, an ardent birder and survivor of the Spanish Influenza and the challenges of the Great Depression who died at age 100. Reid also is the author of Coyote and the forthcoming essay collection Falling into Place.

Blandin scores final point in her final game

OK, so it wasn’t as dramatic as the Boston Red Sox’s Ted Williams belting a home run on his last swing at Fenway Park. But senior guard Sara Blandin scoring the final point in her final game as a Warren Wilson College basketball player was truly a memorable moment for her and her Owl teammates and coaches.
