Diana Green, visits Good Hope High School in Cullman




Arts in Education Program Manager, Diana Green, visits Good Hope High School, where English Teacher, Anita Richter, coordinates a school wide poetry recitation competition.

This is Phase One of Alabama’s Poetry Out Loud program, and the winner of this competition moves forward to a regional competition and then to ASCA’s state finals at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Green interviews three students that just finished participating and placed at the top in their school program. Jacob Smith won third place, Chris Parker won second place, and Maggie Stewart became the school champion. As a bonus, we hear from Peyton Hall, who is a self-taught banjo player, who entertained during the scoring interludes of the competition.
