Hats Off! to Ross White, who pulled off a Hat Trick in the 2011 Poetry Council of North Carolina Awards. His poem “Babies Hurtling Several Stories” won the Gladys Owings Hughes Heritage Award (free verse); his poem "“Facts about Early America” incorporated rhyming couplets to win the Charles Shull Award (traditional poetry); and his “Address to Monarchs” won the James Larkin Pearson Award (free verse).
