King William High School NHS Helps Keep Route 30 Clean

     Members of the King William High School (KWHS) National Honor Society (HNS) as well as parent and teacher volunteers spent their Saturday, March 28, 2015, picking up litter along a two-mile stretch of Route 30. The group of 30 volunteers collected over 50 bags of trash during the recent clean-up. The NHS adopted a portion of the roadway eleven years ago and has been cleaning it diligently ever since.    

     The Adopt-a-Highway program was created by the Virginia Department of Transportation in an effort to keep our roads clean and to provide volunteers with a rewarding opportunity to show pride in their community.  Families, businesses, civic and church groups are encouraged to participate.  To find out which roads are in need of adoption, visit VDOT’s website at www.VDOT.Virginia.gov.


Forensics Team Wins Conference 33 Championship

King William High School brought home the trophy as Conference 33 Champions once again. While VHSL Forensics competition does not begin until February of the school year, competitors begin practicing as early as October.  Choice of material is crucial as well as long hours rehearsing and refining interpretive movement and overall interpretation of pieces. 

There are ten categories in which to compete and schools can send a maximum of seventeen competitors.  This year we had Bray Pitts in Extemporaneous, Garrison Rouse in Impromptu, Logan Mohr and Jazz Booker in Poetry, Kendra Ellis and Emani Johnson in Prose, Matthew Williams and Rachel Groover in Humorous Duo, Safia Nizami and Ronnie Pannell in Serious Duo, Jennie Dinh in Humorous Interpretation, Winter Haigler in Serious Interpretation, Tyler Wright in Storytelling, and Sydney Ayscue in Original Oratory. 

Eight competitors moved forward to Regionals where King William placed third.  We were fortunate to have five competitors for States.  With the three finalists, Bray Pitts (top six in the state), Tyler Wright (top six in the state)  and Kendra Ellis, we approached States to battle out amongst the six best in each category.  Kendra Ellis placed first in the State for Prose.  We congratulate this team for their success and for being so very supportive of their fellow team mates.
