Staff Reports

Ketchikan represented at the Alaska state Drama Debate and Forensics competition Feb. 19-20. The public forum debate team of Audrey Kistler and Cheyenne Mathews place fourth in the event. Kistler placed first in public forum debate speaker points and her partner Mathews placed second. In original oratory Mathews  placed second in the event with a persuasive speech about cochlear implants. Kayhi team member Bella Posey finaled in both of her drama events. Posey finaled with a dramatic interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “A Tell Tale Heart.”  Posey  also finaled in her solo piece.
Coach and teacher Mr. Mitchel said he was impressed with how the state meet went and expects the same for next year.
“In terms of how people do, it’s do they reach their potential not how well did they do, or how well did they place. Those that wanted to, reached their potential this year. Those that went on trips, prepared, wrote their speeches, spent time at home, practicing with their partners and how to excel in those events, did well.”
