Taryn Williams placed 2nd in Editorial Writing at the regional U.I.L. meet at Texas Tech University Saturday, April 21. This qualified her for state competition at the University of Texas May 21.
Williams placed 2nd at district and regional competition. She also placed 5th in Headline writing at district and advanced as an alternate to regionals in that event as well.
“I am so proud of Taryn. She joined the newspaper staff in the middle of last year. She quickly learned Journalism style and was soon laying out the school newspaper all by herself. She worked equally hard on this year’s online school newspaper. She advanced to regionals from district last year as well,” U.I.L. Journalism team coach, Kelly Williamson said.
“This year, she really worked hard. She did lots of practice stories, and she really listened to my critiques and studied U.I.L.’s judging information for the practice stories. She is a very responsible young lady with the talent and determination to become whatever she chooses.”
