Waynesboro native Justice Allen was in the fifth grade at William Perry Elementary School during the 2009-10 school year. His substitute teacher, Tiffany Andrews, who was also his third grade reading teacher, was discussing one of her dreams of writing a book, which went on sale on December 3 of this year. Upon talking about her idea with the class she was substituting in, some let what she said go in one ear and out the other, a few said it was a cool idea and Allen was enthralled.
Andrews was caught slightly off guard, but excited by the young student’s interest. He wanted to know more and more about the book, and that trend carried on for years. But, there was nothing in it for Allen, well, at least he thought.
