Saturday, 2-28-09, the three Optimist Oratorical clubs in Athens held their annual oratorical contest at the courthouse downtown. We were fortunate to have four contestants at the competition, two boys and two girls.
Asher Hill (grade 8) was one of three first place winners in the boys' competition, and Timmy Huang (gr. 6) was one of three second place winners in the boys' arena.
Mariah Pettis (gr. 7) and Isabella Manoguerra (gr.7) both received honorable mentions in the girls' competition.
Please congratulate these students when you see them this week. They worked very hard and were excellent ambassadors for Hilsman Middle School.
