State Speech March 10, 2018
Coach Hensel and her Thespians performed on Saturday with great results. Here's the report from Coach Hensel:
Two people who got straight ones, Daniel Thatcher in Radio News and Olivia Moore in Acting. There were 5 more one ratings, Taylor Miller received an overall one in Prose, Kanyon Huntington received an overall one in Literary Program, Lauren Hadley received an overall one in Prose. Receiving twos were, Emmaline Mitchell in Poetry, Olivia Moore in Storytelling, Abby Harper in Acting, Colton Mitchell in Radio News, Kate Sutton in Poetry, Kylie Tate in Public Address, and Casey Allen in Prose. They all did an amazing job, I am proud of each and every one of them. Remember it is hard to get up in front of people to speak, let alone having 3 judges critiquing you on to boot. Please congratulate them all if you see them today. They represented East Union well. Thank you for all your support.
