Postcard: Our Family Secret (Hint: It's Doughnuts!)

Wrenn Treadway shares part of a family secret

Postcards from Madison County is a special series from WUNC and The Partnership for Appalachian Girls' Education that features personal storytelling from a unique summer program for Appalachian youths.

Our first story is by Wrenn Treadway. Wrenn is from the Walnut community in Madison County, and is entering 7th grade at Madison Middle School in Marshall. Wrenn’s story is about keeping alive one of her favorite family traditions. It’s called "Our Family Secret." It involves doughnuts and a family recipe.


About Postcards From Madison County

Each year, the Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education, or PAGE, provides out-of-school learning opportunities for girls in grades six through nine.

This summer, the PAGE program gave girls a forum for telling—and recording--stories from their own lives. Their narratives are snapshots of everyday life, local culture, and family relationships in the mountains—through the eyes of a young person.
