LHS Senior Speaks to the Rotary Club


On Tuesday January 19th, LHS Senior Gregory Grant presented a speech to the Lebanon Rotary Club at the Dwinell Room near Alice Peck Day Hospital. Gregory was enrolled in a Public Speaking ELO with Mr. SY, and his presentation to the Rotary Club was his signatory delivery to finalize the completion of his ELO. His speech was a reflective oration of his childhood home in Mississippi and a close friend and father-figure that has had a significant impact on his life. View it on YouTube.

Gregory will be competing at the District Level Rotary Speech contest in February and if he wins will move onto the regional level competition between students from Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec, Canada. Also present that morning were Mr Sisemore, Joy Gobin, Bonnie Robinson and Greg's grandmother Jacqueline Gaines. Congratulations, Greg, and good luck!

Student video: Transcendentalist narration

The video above was created by Caleb Broughton, Nate Perkins, and Noah Didehbani. As a part of their English midterm for Ms. Bennett, the students were asked to create a film or scene based on texts that they had learned this year. One form of writing that the boys had studied was transcendentalism, a type of literature that they thought was cool and inspiring. Caleb, Nate, and Noah took a stab at their own transcendentalist narration, and this is their result. Thanks for sharing, guys!

Congratulations!
