Snapshots from the Ripple Effect Launch

Nearly 60 Broad Ripple Magnet School students showed up for the Ripple Effect Launch Party on our last day of the Butler Writers program for the semester. It capped a fantastic first year on-site with the Rockets, one in which our mentors served 200 unique students. Our young writers beamed as we distributed the first volume of Ripple Effect, a 73-page literary magazine housing the creative efforts of 53 different students. We owe a magnificent debt of gratitude to the entire staff of Broad Ripple for making us feel so utterly at home (with a special shout-out to Assistant Principal Meghan Brothers and jack-of-all-trades Lou DeBruicker).
