Weston qualifies for state in forensics event


Morgan Weston recently placed second in poetry at the league forensics competition, qualifying her for state.

Forensics is an acting club where students can participate in events such as prose, duet acting, solo acting, giving speeches, impromptu speech and extemporaneous speaking, where participants have 10 minutes to research and put together a speech over a current event.

Weston’s poem is called “How to Heal the Hurt by Hating” and she describes it as a story about a girl who falls very hard for her first love then comes to realize that love just isn’t for her. While reading poetry, participants are not allowed to move their feet, so emotions in the poem can only be conveyed through tone, facial expressions and hand gestures, and the piece is read from a binder rather than memorized.
