North Pontotoc High School hosted their Poetry Out Loud In-School Contest on December 6, 2019. English and Spanish teacher, Mrs. Ruiz, recited a poem with one of the competitors. Mrs. Ruiz echoed Sonia’s English in Spanish. It was really beautiful to hear. The poem was a favorite of Sonia’s.
Katlynn McCollum, senior, placed first again and goes to North-Half Regionals to compete for State MSPOL Competition. Mary Lott, junior, was the runner-up.
It was a great night for poetry thanks to these amazing students and to those that judged and attended.
