College Roulette

Poet Sherry Reuter, 17, is a senior at Oak Park and River Forest High School; she competed in Louder Than a Bomb 2011 representing his high school.

Her piece, College Roulette, explains Sherry’s struggle with the decision to attend college instead of pursuing her dream of going into the Peace Corps.

Though everyone knows the points are not the point – the point is the poetry – congratulations to Oak Park and River Forest High School, who was chosen as one the four Teams advancing to the Final round of the 2011 competition which celebrated over 600 young writers.
