Congratulations to senior Zach Geiser who placed first in our school-wide Poetry Out Loud competition for his recitation of “Dream Song 14” by John Berryman. Zach will move on to the regional semi-finals for an opportunity to compete at the state level.
Poetry Out Loud is a national arts education program that sponsors a dynamic recitation competition for high schools across the country. This program helps students master public speaking skills and build self-confidence while learning more about classic and contemporary poetry.
Junior Ariana Yanez was the school-wide runner-up for her recitation of “Cartoon Physics, Part 1” by Nick Flynn. There was a four-way tie for third place among sophomore Amanda Braig, junior Julia Hart, senior Danny Dugan and senior Jake Klug.
