An Aiken County student who attends the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities has won a statewide writing award, the school announced today in a news release.
Anna Faison won first place in the fiction category at the South Carolina Writers' Workshop High School Writing Contest for a work called In Which My Brother Learns the Art of Fratricide. Faison's home school is South Aiken High School.
The Governor's School is a public residential high school located in Greenville, S.C., providing a unique arts and academic education to the state's emerging artists. Young artists, usually in 11th or 12th grade, study creative writing, dance, drama, music, or visual arts during the academic year, and rising ninth- and 10th-grade students attend summer programs in these areas, with summer dance programs open to rising seventh- through 12th-grade students.
