Congratulations to David Ehmcke for being awarded a National Gold Medal and National American Voices Medal in the 2016 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Only approximately 5% of entries entered for national adjudication receive an award! This is the first time anyone from East has received this honor!

Radio Broadcasting Banner

Emily Blatchford, Emily Miranda, Hanna Riley, Anna Magana, and Alexis Mattas pose with their hard-earned banner.

This past weekend the East High speech team took 70 students to the all-state large group speech festival in Ames, IA at Iowa State. Nine groups ended up performing, and these lovely ladies ended up receiving the Critic’s Choice banner and plaque for their original Radio Broadcasting entitled “KFIT: Body Positive.” The judge was very impressed with their topic. These girls wrote the entire piece and recorded and revised their piece over and over again! The results paid off! My husband, Risty Bryce, recorded them and helped coach them to this wonderful victory! This will be East High’s 8th banner, which is equivalent to a state championship! East High has NEVER received the Radio Broadcasting banner, until NOW!
