The Carey Scholars helped tutor and give pointers about the ACT and College Readiness to our students. This is the second year that The William Carey University Scholars and this year’s president of Scholars Alyssa Bond have provided ACT and College prep for some seniors. The ACT Prep portion provided test taking strategies that will aid in helping the students improve their scores. The College Prep involved 4 sessions: 1) English/Writing, 2) Math/Science, 3) Getting in and Staying in College, and 4) a college day at William Carey University. Over 40 students attended the first three sessions, and William Carey will gave $1000 scholarships (per year for four years) to the students that participated in these sessions.

Hattiesburg Forensics captured the 2014 Mississippi Forensic League Championship for Speech at Oak Grove High School this past weekend. This marks the 3rd year in a row that HHS has claimed the MFL Speech title. The HHS Chapter of the National Forensic League was also awarded the 2014 School of Excellence in Speech for the period of 2007-2013 and the Leading Chapter award, both a tribute to the long standing success of the program which dates back to the 1960's. Only one school in Mississippi is awarded the Leading Chapter award every six years. HHS has won the award the last four times is has been presented dating back to 1990.

Tiger speakers dominated three of the six categories winning Dramatic Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, and Humorous Interpretation with multiple finalists:

DUO INTERPRETATION, 1st place, Jarrius Adams and Israel Lyons, 2nd place, Kyra Mickens and Jessica James, 3rd place, Jasmine and Yasmeen Poole.

DRAMATIC INTERPRETATION, 1st place, Jarrius Adams, 3rd place, Israel Lyons, 5th place, Kyra Mickens

HUMOROUS INTERPRETATION, 1st place, Derek Collins, 4th place, Zhariah Hubbard

The team of Jarrius Adams/Israel Lyons and Kyra Mickens/Jessica James will advance to the National Forensic League Championships in Kansas City, MO, this June, in Duo Interpretation. They will be joined by HHS freshman phenom Derek Collins who will represent Mississippi in Humorous Interpretation. (Collins is the first HHS freshman to advance to the NFL National Championships. He was also the first HHS freshman to advance at Harvard University and to qualify for the National Individual Events Tournament of Champions in St. Peter, MN, this May.)
