Two sophomores, two juniors, and two seniors, selected by our High School English Teacher, Mr. Jordon Brown, formed a team and competed together for the first time at the Jacksonville State University Writers Bowl on Wednesday, October 25th. This special student team, named the Renaissance Rejects, which was comprised of Hannah Gillam (Team Captain), Jeriel Jammullamudy, Carina Whitmire, Mackenzie Perkins, Kyle Davis, and Audra Putman. They competed against 82 teams in two categories - prose and poetry- and won 2nd place in prose and 2nd place overall!!! Wow! They did exceptionally well their first time competing! LLCA thanks Mr. Brown for encouraging the students to excel in their writing skills!
