Congratulations to CFHS students

Our View

As high school students, we can be a little negative sometimes (OK, maybe more than a little). Scolding our fellow classmates for ignoring the winter formal, scolding our teachers for changing the name of said formal, cynically questioning the true meaning of Christmas, complaining about bad parking jobs … it’s time we give some credit to those who deserve it.

The speech team recently earned all Division 1 ratings at their state large group competition. The groups will not know if they made it all the way to All State until after all other schools compete because the weather inhibited traveling for many this weekend. The speech team worked hard, and it payed off. Hopefully, they are able to take many of their acts to All State.

The jazz bands also took top ratings at the state jazz competition last Saturday, Jan. 28. Both Jazz I and Jazz Too! received Division 1 ratings, with Jazz I receiving perfect ballots from two judges and merely losing one point from the third.

Congratulations are also to staff writer Rhydian Talbot, recipient of the Silver Key award in the state division of the national Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Talbot submitted a portfolio of writing encompassing poetry, editorials, humor-based essays and personal reflections, and the submission was critiqued against hundreds of student writers in Iowa.

Silver Keys are awarded to the top 10 percent of all entries.
