Congratulations to Anthony Jay Spoon, the 2010 East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame student essay winner! Tony has been attending classes for a year and 9 months now. He was born and raised in West Knoxville and still resides there today. He enjoys coming to class, and his favorite subject is math. Although he dislikes probability, he sticks with it nevertheless. He decided he wanted to get his GED when he saw a 48 Hours episode about homicide detectives. He was so intrigued by the episode that he decided this was a path he wanted to take. His first thought was: “A person only lives once, so I gotta try this!!” Now, his goal is to obtain his GED and then begin a career in the police department, and we wish him luck!
Tickets to the 2010 Hall of Fame are available for purchase online or by phone at (865) 594-1507. Your attendance helps support students like Tony achieve their educational and personal goals!
