What does TRAC mean to you?
I'm one of those embroiled in a love affair with words. From an early age, they did far more to my imagination than pictures or sounds alone—words were pictures and sounds and more. My love of reading bled over very early into a desire to write, to share with others this joy and wonder I felt at the power of a few hash-marks put in various orders. As it turns out, it's not as easy as it looks to put hash-marks in various orders. Not well, anyway. So here I am, some many years later, a Presidential Scholar with a degree and still coming back for more. Because I want to improve and because I want to help others improve. TRAC allows and encourages both. Writing is a constant journey, one I feel I've just begun, and any help I can give to fellow travelers along the way is help I give also to myself. That's the spirit of the TRAC program, and that's why it's so exciting to me.
