Passing the Torch: Orlando's First Poet Laureate
On Monday, Oct. 11, one of Trinity Prep's own was taking pictures with Mayor Dyer at City Hall.
Susan Lilley - Trinity's Interim Chair of the English Department, and AP Literature and Composition Instructor - has completed her four-year term as Orlando's inaugural Poet Laureate. She will be passing the torch to Mr. Shawn Welcome as the new Poet Laureate for Orlando.
"Serving as Orlando's first poet laureate was an honor," said Ms. Lilley. "For the last four years, I got to work with people of all ages in writing workshops, showcase Central Florida poets in a variety of ways, and raise awareness of my favorite literary art form.
"I am so grateful that Mayor Dyer and the whole city team values the arts so highly!"
