Heritage High School’s forensic team hosted it’s sixth annual Appalachian Heritage Forensic Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 2.
Students representing ten high schools located in the eastern portion of the state competed in various speaking and acting events. Trophies were awarded to the top six places in each of twelve different events.
Students compete to develop speaking skills and acting techniques, and also become confident, adaptable citizens in the process. Forensic competitors are among the brightest, most creative and talented members of their schools, and frequently are awarded college scholarships based on their participation and grades.
Anthony Majors, HHS forensic team captain helped run the tournament, making it a great success. Katie Amspaugh, theatre arts teacher at HHS is the team coach.
