The Garden City Board of Education work session in the high school cafeteria on April 18 began with a presentation showcasing the work of the Garden City High School Writing Center.

The chairperson of the Garden City High School English Department, Edward Schmieder reviewed the history, goals and activities of the writing center.

Rather than just telling the audience about this innovative program, these teachers also asked student users of the writing center to explain how this program has assisted them in their academic efforts.
