Erin Gruwell visit inspires APSU 1000 students, and the community

 

Erin Gruwell didn’t know what she was in for in the Fall of 1994 when she was assigned to room 203 at Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach California. It was to be her first teaching experience, with group at-risk students that the school’s administration considered to be unteachable.
