Student Congress Results
On Nov. 9-11 the Monticello High school Forensics Team competed in the Annual Arkansas Student Congress.  At this event students are given the opportunity to write and defend legislation with both university and high school students from across the state, and if passed, their legislation is considered for actual law by the Arkansas state legislature.  Students are judged based on their speaking style, delivery, and use of evidence to support their position.  Monticello High School took 8 students for competition and received 13 awards as follows: 
 
Receiving Excellent in Caucus: Blythe Christensen, Sean Kaminicki, Caroline Wilson, Jordan McDaniel
 
Receiving Superior in Caucus: Alex Jones, Makayla Barnett
 
Receiving Excellent in Committee: Sean Kaminicki, Caroline Wilson

Receiving Superior in Committee: Jordan McDaniel, Alex Jones, Blythe Christensen
 
Receiving Best Delegate in Monticello Delegation: (tie) Jordan McDaniel and Alex Jones
 
In addition to a wonderful showing of our students, the Director of Forensics at Monticello High School, Ms. Christy Armbrust was also the Director of this year's competition.  It is a four-year long commitment that requires working with other directors from around the state and with the state capital itself.  The competition was a huge success and Armbrust was recognized for her wonderful contribution and direction of the program.  Little Rock Central High School coach Rosie Valdez, who is also the next director, stated, "I have much to live up to"  following the job that Armbrust did for this year.  These students and Ms. Armbrust represented our city, school, and, being one of two schools from south of I-40, the region very well.
