Selah J. ’26 Places as First Runner-Up in LA Poetry Out Loud Competition

On Thursday, February 1, Selah J. ’26 placed as the first runner-up in the L.A. County Poetry Out Loud, where she was the youngest of the top ten contestants! Representing Archer in its fourth year of participating in the competition, Selah performed amongst over 1,300 students from across Los Angeles County. Selah’s powerful and moving performances of "American Smooth" by Rita Dove and "Black Matters" by Keith S. Wilson were judged for the competition, with the latter poem recited live last night.
