Students receiving 1st-3rd places and 1st place teams in everything except for Journalism and Speech advance to the Regional contest at Odessa on April 25.  These students have been working hard for months, and are deserving of your congratulations.

Along with these students, the One Act Play, “Twelve Angry Jurors,” advanced to the Bi-District Competition to be held here on April 8.

You will not be admitted in to the auditorium once a play has begun. You may, however, come in between plays. They will run back-to-back, so your best bet is to be here for all the shows! They start at 1 p.m, promptly, so, come early.

 
Congratulations to all these students and their sponsors/coaches/directors.
