An Open Thank You to the Family of Peter K. Hixson

To the Family of Peter K. Hixson:

Thank you so much for sponsoring this award. It brought me great joy to call my mother and tell her that her daughter was now an award-winning poet. I also spent the last day researching Peter and his life to get a better understanding of who he was, and I found we share some things in common.
