The second entry into this year’s batch of exemplary first-year writing is Nathan Garner’s “A Game of Technology: A Profile of Coach Lee Richter.” It was nominated by Dr. Justin Thurman.
About this piece, Dr. Thurman writes:
Nathan’s profile of LaGrange College’s golf coach manages to do two things quite well. First off, it captures Coach Richter’s commitment to his players and details how he came to be a coach at LaGrange College. Secondly, it explores the far-reaching uses and abuses of social media and information technology. The piece is ultimately successful, however, because Nathan worked through multiple drafts and incorporated valuable feedback from his workshop peer group.
