On Thursday, April 17, faculty, staff, and students gathered to enjoy tea and scones, wax poetic and hear the winners of Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday Sonnet Contest read their sonnets. English Professor Thomas Becknell announced the winners and the celebration continued with readings by Barrett Fisher, Jim Hurd, Dan Nimlos, April Schmidt, Ruben Rivera and more with music by Krin McMillen, Dan Sandberg, Shatera Graham and Taylor Bothun!
