Deanie Humphrys-Dunne I'm proud to announce that Sherry is the well-deserved winner of the 9/11 essay contest sponsored by Cambridge Who's Who. The contest was initiated by multi-award winning author, Claire Power Murphy, who is also founder of the group,"The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword," on Cambridge Who's Who. Claire was the judge of the contest and she was assisted by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, the administrator of "The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword." Several members of the group participated in the contest by submitting excellent essays of their memories of that tragic day in our history.

Sherry Ellis Happy Easter everyone!
