Garnavillo resident and 2008 graduate of Clayton Ridge High School Elizabeth (Bergan) Nazarchyk is the author of a recently published children’s book called Town of McLee

While Nazarchyk hasn’t formally studied writing, she says she began writing books with her mother at a young age. “It was always just kind of a fun thing we did,” Nazarchyk laughs. “She began writing books for me because I always loved being read to and being the star of the story. After that I started writing books and reading them to her – it’s been an ongoing thing.”

It has been a challenging and exciting year for the Clayton Ridge School District, made more so by the departures of high school principal Kris Einck and superintendent Allan Nelson. The school board has filled both positions – one with a familiar face, and one with someone new to the district.

We learn as students that blood flows through our veins and arteries from our hearts all the way to the tiniest capillaries in our fingertips, and we learn that hormones travel through our bodies activating necessary processes. We learn that electrical impulses sent by nerves running from our feet to our brains will notify us of a pebble underfoot or a pain in the stomach.
