Mrs. Lacey Riggan - Literary Genres Honors
I come from a small town in Texas filled with people who always look out for their children. Holland, Texas, is comprised of farmers, their relatives, and their relatives' relatives. It is the kind of place that people carry with them wherever they go. I graduated when I was sixteen as salutatorian from Holland High School. Thanks to the funding from the local Corn Fest, which goes toward paying for seniors to go to college, I had already begun attending Temple College and continued to do so until I left to earn my BA in English at Texas State University. I spent a year teaching at Killeen's Manor Middle School. Once I moved to San Antonio the following year, I spent sixteen years at Judson Secondary Alternative School (renamed JCARE). Afterward, I enjoyed three years teaching at VMHS's satellite campus located at Ayres Halfway House. During that time, I self-published two novels and have edited several more for other published authors. This upcoming year will be my twenty-fourth as an educator. It is my fourth year to have the privilege of teaching at JECA.
