Alumni Publish Children’s Book

Two WCU alumni recently collaborated to publish a children’s book, The Heart of a King.  Curtis Sikes authored the work and Sheena Kohlmeyer illustrated.  Both are currently teachers at Swain County Middle School in Bryson City, NC.  Sikes obtained a teaching license through the NC TEACH program at WCU and is a graduate of the Professional Writing program.  Kohlmeyer obtained her BSEd in Art Education from WCU.  Sikes says he dedicated the book to a former teacher that encouraged him in creative thinking and writing.  For more information, see the book’s website:
