MADISON, Tenn. — A book written by Ashland native Pamela K. Orgeron has been nominated for a 2021 Author Elite Award.

Orgeron’s book, “Why Didn’t They Hear Us,” was nominated in the self-help category. The book addresses the causes, consequences and solutions to children in America feeling unheard, and includes abused, neglected and foster children.

The top 10 finalists in each category will be invited to present their book synopsis at an Author Elite Awards red carpet session Oct. 22 in Columbus, Ohio. Winners will be announced that evening.

Orgeron earned an undergraduate degree in journalism from Marshall University, and she received both an M.A. and Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in adult and higher education, counseling specialization, from Morehead State University.
