Rose is recognized this year for her authorship of 'New Crop on the Block: Switchgrass', which appeared in the April issue of The Michigan Assessor magazine.  " It is an interesting and well written article describing the uses and origins of this versatile crop. Who knew that grass could be used for biofuel?

Rose is the GIS Technician/Property Appraiser for Barry County and holds a MA in Geography from Western Michigan University. She has been member of the executive board of Michigan Communities Association of Mapping Professionals for 15+ years and is a frequent presenter on parcel mapping and assessing topics at their annual conference.

Ms. Anger also authored an article appearing in the April 2016 issue of The Michigan Assessor, titled 'The "Due" Course', which discussed the origin and use of the term "due" in legal descriptions.

It is for her outstanding literary efforts and contributions to MAA that we recognize Rosemary Anger with the 2018 Frank Moss Literary Award.
