Lydia Szlasa placed 2nd in Humorous Interpretation! Amanda Mooney and Phillip Bennett both brought home 4th place finishes in Dramatic Interpretation and Prose Interpretation. Finally, Tarah Kelley was elected presiding officer, won the Keystone House, and placed 8th overall in congressional debate! Future congress woman?

Their success is a huge credit to our wonderful faculty and community. Watching these students handle the stress and pressure with confidence and poise would have made everyone very proud. There were many schools from around the state asking where Sayre High School was located.

You make us all Redskin Proud!
