Connor has poems published
David Connor, a senior at Fleming-Neon, has won the admiration of his fellow classmates by his ability to compose poetry.
David entered Fleming at the beginning of his senior year. He formerly attended Bryan Station High School in Lexington. David’s parents are living in Lexington. David is staying with his aunt, Mrs. Lucille Garrett of Fleming.
David has had the poems entitled, “My Wondering Mind”, “Near the End,” and others published in the Community Press, a weekly newspaper published at Cromona.
