Brandon Fair Brandon Fair

Nov. 15, 2011 – Brandon Fair, a sophomore fisheries science major from Mount Sidney, Va., earned second place in the Virginia Outdoor Writers Association, Inc., Collegiate Undergraduate Writing Contest. Students from the college have placed in the competition nearly every year.

Fair’s essay, “Canadian Pinholes,” describes one of his most memorable outdoor experiences with his father and his Boy Scout troop in lake Opeongo, Canada. “I am truly blessed to have received this reward. I love to write, but, honestly, I get few opportunities to do so,” Fair remarked. “My confidence in my writing was definitely boosted by receiving this reward.”
