Congratulations are extended to Mary Scopelliti, Class of 2017, and Eli Yemzow, Class of 2018, on qualifying for the Pennsylvania High School Speech League (PHSSL) State Championship! Mary competed in the Humorous Interpretation competition and finished as a District 9 champion!  Mary's contest required her to choose a "cutting" from a humorous play, memorize it, and then recreate the scene using appropriate gestures and voices. As a First Place winner, Mary earned one of  two District 9 qualifier spots for the state tournament.
Eli finished Third in the Extemporaneous Speaking contest and qualfied for the state tournament as an alternate. Contestants in this category are provided three current events topics related to politics, economics, or culture. After selecting a topic, the contestant is given 30 minutes of preparation time before delivering a speech that must be concluded within 7 minutes. Eli chose to speak on  Brexit (the departure or exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union). 
Mary and Eli will be joined by a third Southern student, who according to Advisor Mr. Ian McCoog, will be selected through a "sweepstakes" process. Good luck students- wishing you much success!
