English - Nan Rushing Write Off

The Nan Rushing Write-off was started in 1985, by then Southeast Bulloch English language arts teacher Nan Rushing, who had received a $1,000 mini-grant from the school system to begin a writing event in Nevils.  Of the 10 mini-grants awarded in 1985, by former School Superintendent Ed Wynn, the Nan Rushing Write-off and the Penny Sikes Math Tournament are the two remaining programs that have stood the test of time and offered a valuable tool for encouraging students in math and language arts. Rushing was an educator for 37 years.

     The Write-Off was named in Nan Rushing's honor in 2008. Businesses and civic groups like Excelsior EMC, Brooklet Kiwanis, local banks, and others have helped support the write-off through the years after the initial grant ended.
