Fabien Yssac MendozaFabien Yssac Mendoza, a student at Goodnight Junior High School, is a published author. His poem — “One and Only”—was included in Diverse Youth 2008, a publication from the Anthology Austin International Poetry.

According the Goodnight eighth grade teacher Roxana Heiser, the project was funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division, by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts which “believes that a great nation deserves great art.”

Goodnight Librarian Janet Armstrong has displayed a copy of the book in the library for public viewing.
