The prowess of the high school English department was on full display this past Sunday, when the Memphis Jewish Federation announced the winners of its Holocaust Poetry and Essay contests. Our girls pulled off a complete sweep of both categories. Racheli Tsuna, Myrel Nechama Samuels, and Zehava Gersten took first, second, and third place respectively in the poetry section. Naomi Samberg took the top prize in the essay contest and read her piece aloud at Sunday's community-wide Yom HaShoah commemoration. She was followed by Ariana Kaufman in second place and Leah Flieschhacker in third.
Congratulation to all of them - and their teachers - for a job very well done!
