Lone Star College-North Harris is full of amazing and talented students. Ross Rice, recently named the 2009-2010 LSC-North Harris Student Poet Laureate, is no exception.
Rice has always been interested in writing. Even before he could write them down, he had ideas for stories as a very young child. It was in elementary school that he first began writing poetry and short fiction. Rice is an avid reader. He likes to study many different genres and studies the writing style in order to improve his own techniques.
This past fall, Rice has completed his first semester at LSC-North Harris. Rice took a year off after high school where he tried several jobs and finally landed at Borders Books and considers it the ideal job since he can be around books all the time. Rice likes the campus and his professors and he plans to stay at LSC-North Harris for several semesters. Eventually, he would like to transfer to the LSC-University Center to earn a degree from one of seven LSC-North Harris partner universities. He is considering English as his major and sees editing, journalism, and film as possible career choices. His dream job would be a travel journalist, so he could see more of the world.
Watch out World; Catch Stars; My Island; Shuga, were the four poems Ross submitted to capture the distinction of being named winner Poet Laureate of LSC-North Harris.
