Members of the Class of 2026 and their families gathered to celebrate the 22nd Annual Freshman Writing Night on Tuesday, May 9. Begun in 2002, the event marks the publication of "Freshman Voices," a collection of written work done in the Freshman Writing classes, and honors Jack Birmingham '59, P'84, GP'14,'17 former Board President and inspiration for the Writing Program at St. Sebastian's. Freshman Writing is taken in addition to the Freshman English class, giving the 9th graders an in-depth opportunity to develop as writers. During the event, a representative from each section of the course, including Ace Ciongoli, Dominic Funke, John Grimes, Seth Janchar, Gavin Joyce, Eamon McCarthy, and Cameron Steele shared a piece of their work with all those in attendance. The John P. Birmingham Freshman Writing Award was presented to Dominic Funke for his exceptional submission for the Freshman Voices anthology.
Congratulations to all of the Arrows in the Freshman Writing classes.
