Charlie Garrison, a sophomore at Runnels High School, was named a Top Ten Winner in Creative Communications’ Summer 2019 Poetry Contest. He received the award for his original poem “Great Blue Heron,” which will be published in Creative Communications’ 2019 summer anthology A Celebration of Poets. 
Each Top Ten Winner receives a $25 cash prize and a complimentary copy of the book in which their work appears. 
Garrison’s poem was submitted to the contest by his freshman English teacher Michelle Stanfield last spring. 
Garrison is the son of Rachel and Rob Garrison.
