The audience was the big winner at the 2017 FHS Poetry Slam. 285 of us crowded into the FHS Library to watch 27 poets battle it out. Fast cars and fast words. Catcalls and Conway Callouts. Broken brains and broken dreams. Religion and Riddles. Stay tuned for the video. Thanks to my other Slam Committee members –Pam Garrett, Dana Vinger, Amber McGill, Mercedes Munoz, Elizabeth Kirsch, Desmond Spann, Michael Corenthal, Deb Dombrowksi for their help. Additional thanks to Rebecca Coulterpark, Marjie Chambers, Scarlet Graham, Vida Grider, Hilda Escalara-Gonzales, SUN School, Poetic Justice, Steve O’Neill and his Culinary Arts students, Josh Forsythe and his super crew, MC’s Santi and Skylar, musician Nika Ko, Math Guys–Trevor Butenhoff and Kieran Andrews, and our custodial staff, and especially the FHS PTSA funders.
Our big big thanks go to judges Chris Frazier, Meysha Harville, Claudia Savage, Susie Silva Strommer, and Mike Waller, as well as all the teachers & parents that inspired, encouraged, and taught these students to use their words.
