       FCCLA will be going to Carnall elementary school on Wed., Jan. 30.

         This weekend Southside Rebel Theatre competed at the Arkansas State
Thespian Festival in Alma and we had several students honored. Kaley Etzkorn was chosen
for Best in Show for Costume Design, Gabby Devero was chosen best in Show for Theatre
Marketing, and Zach Myers received Superior ratings in Solo Musical. All three of these
students have earned the privilege of competing at the national level this summer in their
respective events, a major honor for Southside. Kayla Menz set the world record for knot
tying in Tech Challenge, helping to secure a 3rd place win for her Tech Challenge team. We
had several students honored as All-State Cast Members, another major honor for
Southside. Emily Brooks, Kaley Etzkorn, Laney Lawson, Parker Milam, and Jake Moore all
received All-State Cast, the most awards from any one act at the festival. Southside's one act,
Arabian Nights, was chosen as runner-up to represent Arkansas in the national one act
festival this summer. Our seniors also brought home more than $140,000 in scholarships!
