On March 18, three Starr’s Mill Panthers placed at the annual GHSA literary competition. 

Ten students represented Starr’s Mill in writing, drama, singing, and debate. This year, it was hosted at Warner Robins High School. 

“It was a really good time, and any chance I get to perform is really cool,” junior Julian Agudelo said. “There were a lot of people from different places and I got to talk and meet new people that also focused on voice and music, so that was great.”

Agudelo placed fourth with his solo. Senior Matthew Little placed third in solo dramatic interpretation. Sophomore Ella Griswold placed third with her argumentative essay. 

“I had about two weeks to memorize and prepare a 10-minute monologue,” Little said. “Things went very well at the regional competition. It was a very fun experience, and I’m glad I was able to place.”

Students interested in participating in next year’s literary competition can see English teacher Terence Fitzgerald or drama teacher Lauren Kuykendall.
