Superintendent William Koran, Kris Rutledge and Jacinda Yonker, from the Educational Service Center (ESC) of Medina County, present the 31st edition of the INKSPOT to Medina Sunrise Rotary and thanked Rotary for their continued sponsorship of Medina County Schools' Literary Magazine. First published in1986-1987, the INKSPOT showcases exceptional and unique pieces of prose, poetry, and artwork. This literary review highlights the imaginations and creative thoughts of today's youth in Medina County.

The Father of our Country, President George Washington, wrote, "To encourage literature and the arts is a duty which every good citizen owes his country."  "This 31st edition of the INKSPOT proves that the art of writing is alive and well in the schools of Medina County," stated Superintendent Koran.

Medina Sunrise Rotary dedicates the INKSPOT to the 27,000 students in Medina County and to Rotary International's goal of encouraging and achieving global literacy. Whether Rotarians work to eliminate poverty, polio, or hunger, it all starts with education and literacy.  As B. B. King, the King of the Blues, wrote, "The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you!"
