Thanks for successful poetry slamIn conjunction with the creativity festivity, the Durango High School annual poetry slam was an enormous success this year. Many thanks to our sponsors, School District 9-R and Durango Arts Center, and thank you, Maria’s Bookshop and Animas Chocolate Co., for the donations.
The slam would not have been possible without the evening’s ceremony hosts, judges, scorekeepers, coaches and volunteers: Shelby Fuchs, Claudia Luthy, Calibration Poet, Dan Riecks, Scott Graham, Erin Schanbarger, Candace Alburn, Kyle Schultz, Avery Lazare, Alex Pinion, Sheridan Brull, Sandra Butler and Eric Bulrice. Thank you, director Evan Suiter, and Superbad for the music. Also, congratulations to first-place poet Amy Leonard and second-place poet Aubrey Haddow.
Words possess power!
