SG resident earns honors at Marmion writing competition

Sugar Grove resident Brendan Bakala was among one of 18 Marmion Academy students who were selected to have their work published in the English department’s annual The Reverend Father Peter Enderlin OSB Writing Competition Literary Magazine.

All Marmion students were eligible to submit manuscripts to the competition in the categories of poetry, fiction and essay.

Bakala earned an honorable mention in the essay category, for a work titled “An Unbiased Observation of Capital Punishment.”

The competition is named for the late Father Peter Enderlin OSB who dedicated his life to the students of Marmion. In his sophomore honors English class he stressed writing above all.
