Congratulations to West Central's Large Group Speech participants Erin Hamlett and Octavia George on receiving All-State Honors for their performance in Ensemble Acting. The two became characters involved in an unusual interview process from a piece entitled "Shrinkage" written by Andrew Messer. The recent Northeast Area competition was hosted, in part, by North Fayette Valley. The pair received straight ones from all three judges. All-State nominations must come from two of the three judges to be considered for the honor. Erin and Octavia will each receive an All-State medal and a banner will be sent to the school for display in the gymnasium. This is Octavia's first All-State nomination and Erin's second after receiving the honor for her performance in Individual Speech last Spring. Because of Covid and State regulations, All-State performances were not held last spring and unfortunately will not be held again this year. Erin will now compete in Individual Speech in the coming weeks and both girls are members of the cast for the spring play to be performed in April, hopefully before a live audience in the West Central Auditorium.
