Poets Perform at the Kennedy Center

Wakefield Poetry Club sent senior Avery Johnson, senior Moya Seneb, junior Takier George, and junior Sam Whichard to the Louder Than A Bomb DMV Poetry Slam at the Kennedy Center last Sunday, April 28th. These poets left everything on the stage! Avery Johnson had the highest scoring poem of the night, Candy. Avery said, “what a way to end senior year.” The team got 2nd place in the overall competition, just 0.7 points (out of 120) behind the winners, Hayfield High School. Moya said, “These are the moments I am going to remember for the rest of my life.”Want to be part of the excitement? Join Poetry Club on Thursdays in C-116 right after school.
