effort:' says Harriet Maza, who was her
journalism teacher at West Bloomfield
High and in Erin's mind, "the teacher
who influenced me most!'
"From the moment she entered my
journalism room as a sophomore, Erin
was hooked," Maza says. "For her senior
year, I chose her to be editor in chief
... Because of her versatility, her overall
understanding of the entire communi-
cations package, her ability to assimilate
information quickly and teach others
what she knew, she made the perfect
leader and manager. I could almost sit

but had different views of how Irene
would have reacted.
"Going to live in Poland for a year
is quite a feat:' says Brian, who lives in
Royal Oak. "It's nothing I would ever
