Congratulations to FHS students-Juan Ordaz (11th grade) and Sam Burnett (12th grade) who came in 3rd and 4th after two exciting rounds at Verselandia! They had tough competition with amazing poets from all the other PPS high schools. Juan won an iPad mini and Sam won a $250 gift certificate to Powell’s. They will both get to spend a day at Weiden & Kennedy making connections with powerful, creative, wordy types. For the record- no other school had two winners in the top 5! Pictures, video, and more exciting news to follow. Thanks Slam Committee, volunteer slam coach – FHS alum Dupree Stubblefield (in the middle), and PTA.
