Sophomore Felicity Ryan won the 2018 D.C. Poetry Out Loud citywide competition. Latin’s champion competed against 9 other finalists to take the title, and she will now proceed to the national Poetry Out Loud Finals April 23-25.  Her stunning renditions of “A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky” by Lewis Carroll, “The Children’s Hour” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and “Time does not bring relief; you all have lied” by Edna St. Vincent Millay earned her a first place finish for the city along $500 in poetry books for the school and a $200 cash prize for herself.  We wish her continued success in the finals!
