In Memorium Misty Upham 1982-2014

It is with deep sadness that we note the loss of Misty Upham (YSW First Year, 1998). We last saw her in 2014 when she helped with the Sonnet lecture/workshop at Franklin H.S. and with the Not As You Like It project at Cleveland H.S.  May her spirit rest in peace, and her courage, passion, and accomplishments continue to inspire.
