Danielle Hill progresses to state finals in Poetry Out Loud competition
RHS junior Danielle Hill was named one of the top six participants in Poetry Out Loud’s Cape Cod regional semi-finals on Sunday, March 2nd. The competition was held at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth and lasted approximately four hours. Hill performed two poems, The Enigma by Anne Stevenson and Happiness by Paisley Rekdal.
Hill will now move on to the state competition next Sunday, the 9th, at which she will perform the same two poems in hopes of making it to the national level in Washington DC as the sole representative of Massachusetts.
Graduate Christopher Carchedi made it to the state finals last year as well, but was unsuccessful in making it further.
RHS students and faculty, especially those in the English department, are both proud to be represented by Hill and impressed with her progress in the competition.
