Students will be competing in music, oral interpretation, extemporaneous speaking and essay.

“We’re excited about our team this year we have a considerable number of returning members which always adds a level of confidence when they’ve been before,” said Ms. Sylvia Haynie. “Our girls trio is completely made up of seniors. There’s Walker and Noah who isn’t a senior but both did quartet last year”.

Competing in boys quartet are Walker Gibbons, Noah Fenimore, Austin Slocumb and Matt Newberry. Walker Gibbons will also be competing as the boys soloist.
